The Jazz Show Episode June 21, 2010

Broadcast on 21-Jun-2010

9:00pm - 12:00am

The music of pianist/composer Armando Anthony "Chick" Corea needs no introduction to most of you. He is a musician extraordinaire who has covered every musical base possible. From "free" avant-guarde Jazz to classical music, it's all the same to Corea. Tonight's Feature is called "Trio Music" and it is mostly that. This is a re-union of three musicians with special chemistry and they are: bassist Miroslav Vitous and drummer Roy Haynes. The selections were recorded during a European tour in September 1984. The set opens with a Corea composition called "The Loop" then we move to two standards woven together: "Summer Night" by Dubin and Warren segueing to Cole Porter's "Night and Day". Solo piano follows this and it's Mr Corea playing Alexander Scriabin's "Prelude #2" and segueing to a Corea creation called "Mock Up". Finally back to the trio with Vitous' composition "Mirovisions". All in all totally inspiring music by three masters. Corea, Vitous and Haynes. Enjoy!
