Chick Corea Trio in Moscow
May 15th 2017 - CHAYKOVSKOGO CONCERT HALL - 7PM
The new Trilogy Trio is a “spiritual chemistry” experiment – since Avishai and Marcus have never worked together before. They are both some of my favorite musicians – and I love the adventure of discovering what we can create together as a trio.
I’ve always been inspired by Avishai’s music and bass playing since the first time I listened to a cassette tape of his new band many years ago. I helped him produce his first album and he has continued on to become one of the most prolific and creative composer/bandleaders in jazz. My band “Origin” was inspired by Avishai – and, in fact was his band which I then wrote for.
Marcus is a phenomena on the drums. Probably the most well-rounded drummer I know. Even though he is the grandson of the great Roy Haynes, he, from a very early age, created his own style of drumming. He is highly competent and creative in both written music – as in playing the percussion parts to my piano concerto – as well as playing in any rhythmic context in any style.
Avishai will contribute a new composition or more and the three of us will re-create the new Trilogy repertoire as we go.
