Corea passed away in February 2021, leaving behind an incomparable legacy as a composer, performer and bandleader whose work has inspired generations of musicians. He was a frequent and highly regarded guest of Jazz at Lincoln Center, performing with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and as a soloist, as well as performing at Dizzy’s Club and The Appel Room. In 2013, Jazz at Lincoln Center recognized Corea’s monumental contributions to jazz with a week-long festival dedicated to his music, placing him in the company of legendary artists such as John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Charlie Parker, and making him the only living artist in the history of JALC to receive this honor.

Along with celebrating Chick Corea, JALC will further commemorate the maestro’s career with Chick Corea Afro-Caribbean Experience with Elio Villafranca and Friends at Dizzy’s Club on April 15 and 16 at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. These concerts will delve into Corea’s music from an Afro-Caribbean-meets-jazz perspective led by pianist and composer Elio Villafranca, whom Corea handpicked to perform at Dizzy’s during the 2013 Chick Corea Festival. Chick Corea Afro-Caribbean Experience will feature an international and cross-generational lineup of acclaimed jazz artists selected by Villafranca to express the broad musical influences of Corea’s music, with Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Donny McCaslin on tenor sax, Edward Perez on bass, Eric Harland on drums and Mauricio Herrera on percussion.
