“Gale force intensity… gloriously impassioned.” – Jazzwise Magazine
No one can accuse Chick Corea of resting on his laurels. The 20-time Grammy award-winner and NEA Jazz Master personifies a rare artistic standard of excellence. Corea’s latest project, The Vigil features all new compositions and re-workings of old favorites. The Guardian calls The Vigil “Corea’s best band in decades” —and, perhaps, the only one truly capable of managing a tough book of music that consolidates a career now entering its sixth decade and still driving forward with relentless energy. While The Vigil is indeed fusion-oriented reminiscent of Corea’s Return to Forever era, there’s a number of fully acoustic pieces that brings a different kind of energy to the table. The Vigil includes Tim Garland on saxophones, flute, bass clarinet; Charles Altura on guitar; Carlitos Del Puerto on bass; Marcus Gilmore on drums; and Luisito Quintero on percussion. From his early work with Mongo Santamaria, Stan Getz and Miles Davis, and his avant-garde adventures in Circle (with Anthony Braxton), to pioneering fusion with Return To Forever, Corea continues to progress forward with brilliant compositions and inspirational playing
