June Jazz Gumbo a tribute to Chick Corea
June's Jazz Gumbo presents a tribute to the music of composer and pianist Chick Corea. It will be 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, June 18, at Phineas Phogg's.
Music will be by Jack Zoesch on piano, Chuck Schwartz on sax, Sean Peterson on bass and Fred Domulot on drums.
Chick Corea, say our friends at Wikipedia, is an American jazz pianist/electric keyboardist and composer. His compositions "Spain", "500 Miles High", "La Fiesta" and "Windows", are considered jazz standards. As a member of Miles Davis' band in the late 1960s, he participated in the birth of jazz fusion. In the 1970s he formed the fusion band Return to Forever. With Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, and Keith Jarrett, he has been described as one of the major jazz piano voices to emerge in the post-John Coltrane era.
Cost of Jazz Gumbo is $10 each for Jazz Pensacola members and guests, $12 for non-members, free for students with ID and military in uniform. Also, join Jazz Pensacola at this event, and admission is free.
Admission includes a cup of seafood gumbo, and you can order from the menu and cash bar. Hold onto your admission tickets for Door Prize drawings. Attendees can also purchase 50/50 tickets for a cash drawing. The winner gets half, and Jazz Pensacola gets half to benefit its music program.
