Elio Villafranca & The Chick Corea Afro-Caribbean Experience

Sun, Feb 5
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Admission starts at: $20
Kleinhans Music Hall • 3 Symphony Circle, Buffalo 14201

Description

Chick Corea was quoted in a 2019 Billboard interview as saying, “That [Latin] flavor, I find, is mostly in everything I do; it’s a part of me.” As we celebrate jazz icon Chick Corea, who tragically passed away in February 2021, Grammy Nominated Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca will delve into the maestro’s compositions from a distinctly Afro-Caribbean meets Jazz perspective, joined by a sextet of master musicians including Grammy winner saxophonist Donny McCaslin. When Jazz at Lincoln Center hosted a week-long Chick Corea Festival in 2013, Chick hand-picked the musicians he wanted to see and hear, with Elio Villafranca being one of them. Chick’s masterful storytelling knew no bounds—from Bach and Bartok to the Blues, from Stravinsky to Samba, Mozart to Montunos, Ravel and Rhumba—all tempered with the language of swing with the Spanish Tinge.  The Chick Corea Afro-Caribbean Experience musical arrangements have only been performed at Jazz at Lincoln Center during two special Chick Corea tribute engagements. This concert will be a one-time only special command performance in Buffalo!
