Chick Corea and Béla Fleck will be in concert as part of the Performing Arts Series at the University of the South in Sewanee’s Guerry Auditorium Wednesday, March 27, at 7;30 CDT.
Review for Chick Corea and Béla Fleck:
Chick Corea and Béla Fleck, two master songwriters, musicians, and band leaders meet in a historic duet of piano and banjo. The Grammy-winning duet will combine Corea and Fleck's most recognizable tunes with the music from their Latin Grammy-winning album "The Enchantment." With a mix of jazz and pop standards, crossing a myriad of genres including jazz, bluegrass, rock, flamenco and gospel, this will be a casual, intimate evening with two legends from different musical worlds.
Fleck’s intense musical curiosity and spirit of innovation have drawn him into nearly every genre of music, stretching the boundaries of each and producing extraordinary collaborations. He has worked in bluegrass, country, jazz and world music, and won multiple Grammy Awards.
A DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, 20-time Grammy winner, and undisputed keyboard virtuoso, Chick Corea has attained living legend status after four decades of unparalleled creativity and artistic output. From straight-ahead to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, children's songs to chamber music, Corea has touched an astonishing number of musical bases while maintaining a singular standard of excellence.
