CHICK COREA ENSEMBLE Directed by ARMEN DONELIAN
The Chick Corea Ensemble, directed by Armen Donelian, play, listen to, and study 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.
