Jazz at the Bechtler: Tribute to Chick Corea
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5 AT 6 OR 8:15 PM
With a career that spanned nearly six decades, Chick Corea achieved iconic status as one of the most revered figures in contemporary jazz. To celebrate Corea’s genre-shattering music and on-stage partnerships with other jazz greats such as Eliane Elias, Herbie Hancock, and Hubert Laws, the Ziad Jazz Quartet and special guest Martin Bejerano pay tribute to the piano master. Bejerano joins Ziad Rabie (saxophone), Al Sergel (drums), and Ron Brendle (bass), to perform songs such as “Windows,” “Armando’s Rhumba,” “Spain,” and many more!
Get to know Martin Bejerano
Martin Bejerano is a two-time winner of the prestigious "New Jazz Works" composition and ensemble development grant by Chamber Music America in 2010 and 2017, and the “Bacardi Choice” commission by the Dranoff International 2 Piano Foundation and Bacardi, Int. in 2013. His commissioned composition, “Fantasia de Tres Mundos" for 2 Pianos,” was premiered in April 2014 at the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center and has since been performed numerous times internationally and recorded by award-winning piano duo Stephanie and Saar.
Martin has performed for 18 years with legendary jazz drummer and Grammy award-winning artist Roy Haynes. In 2004, their recording "Fountain of Youth" was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Jazz Album--Martin’s first recording on a major label. In January 2002, Martin also joined internationally acclaimed guitarist Russell Malone’s quartet, touring and recording with the group for over eight years, while continuing to tour with the Roy Haynes Quartet to this day.
Having has also performed with the likes of the Christian McBride Band, Dave Holland, Pat Metheny, Ron Carter, Ignacio Berroa, Lonnie Plaxico, Bryan Lynch, Adam Nussbaum, Roy Hargrove, Arturo Sandoval, Mingus Big Band, John Faddis, Wycliffe Gordon, Rick Margitza, and even traded choruses with the legendary Chick Corea, one can easily gain a sense of Bejerano’s formidable talent on the keyboard.
