Jazz Festival

Press conference on now. So far, Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas; Bobby McFerrin; Chick Corea and Bela Fleck. 15th Anniversary from Nov. 30th to Dec. 2nd. The transmission was kind of weak so I missed some of the other acts.

David McCallum played both roles.

Ooh, Wallace Roney!

Personally would prefer to hear Chick Corea either solo or with his own band rather than with Bela Fleck, but OK. (Actually what would probably be better is Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea.)

Trying to figure McLaughlin and Jimmy Herring playing together...

Thanks for the info!

ETA: Still no functional web site for the festival but their FB page indicates that McLaughlin & Herring with be doing Mahavishnu Orchestra stuff. FWIW.

None of it is really my scene but thought I would post it because I was at the Asociacion de Hoteles today and saw them getting ready for the presser. I do like banjo but Bela Fleck is not really one of my bluegrass guys.

Chick Corea is at the Blue Note Jazz Club in Greenwich Village tonight. I couldn't talk my hubs into taking me...

He's a fine musician but I have at least one of the albums the two of them did together and just didn't think that combination really worked or added anything to the music of either of them. In fact, it was more like detracting than adding.

The guy you want playing along with Chick Corea is Gary Burton, for sure. If they could get those two to appear, boy...
