Artistic icon Chick Corea has 22 Grammy wins—the most of any jazz artist, ever! He is both one of the most influential jazz artists of his generation and one of the greatest living jazz pianists. Chick and drummer Steve Gadd’s musical partnership is the stuff of legend—but the music is always new. It’s a coup to bring these venerated maestros to Rhode Island—catch them live on the brink of their new album release this fall!
Mike Boston is a rapper-entrepreneur-activist who has gained local and national attention as the founder of Mobile Stü, a mobile studio he takes into tough urban areas to give inner-city kids a voice—and to collaborate musically with police officers.
An open band of brass, reeds and drums, there are over 30 musicians and dancers in the ERB family. Their musical influences range from New Orleans jazz to Middle Eastern klezmer, Spanish revolutionary songs to funk, rhythm & blues.
This young jazz master from Trinidad defies easy categorization – a student of pan-Caribbean music, as fluent in the horn riffs of New Orleans brass as he is the Spanish rhythms of the islands. Etienne Charles will discuss the many influences in his life and education that have helped shape his career.
