Last week was really inspiring - hearing and playing with Chick Corea. Always one of my heroes. He was very open to the JALC and all the arrangements the we had brought to the project. I think seven guys wrote arrangements of his music, which mostly dipped into the history book: Matrix, Crystal Silence, Humpty Dumpty, You're Everything, Windows, Tones For Jones Bones, etc. He remarked that they felt fresh and new again! His playing was always engaged and engaging. I think there will be more to come with this relationship between he and the Jazz at Lincoln Center...
During a break on a rehearsal with Chick, he and I read through some of his "Children Songs." Chris Crenshaw caught a piece on his phone-video.
