Chick Corea Ensemble, directed by Armen Donelian | Winter '18 Ensemble & Recital Series | School of Jazz
Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
School of Jazz Performance Space, Room I531, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011
Performance is a central component of every student's education at The School of Jazz, and the ensemble showcases are where faculty-led student groups showcase their talent and creativity.
The Chick Corea Ensemble plays, listens to, and studies the music of Chick Corea, one of the most prolific, influential, and multi-directional pianist/composers in jazz. Special attention is paid to developing students’ improvisational originality, melodic and harmonic clarity, sensitivity to dynamics and timbral nuances, propulsive and relaxed sense of time and rhythm, and interplay within the rhythm section. Works including “Steps,” “What Was,” “Tones for Joan’s Bones,” “Windows,” “Litha,” “Captain Marvel,” “Like This,” and “Morning Sprite” are played.
