Pianist and author Monika Herzig will present her newest work, Experiencing Chick Corea: A Listener’s Companion. This book looks at the full span of Corea’s career, decade by decade, touching on the vast array of musical styles he engaged, from his initial work with Herbie Mann to his free explorations with Circle. It touches on his arguably most influential album Now He Sings, Now He Sobs, his involvement with Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew and subsequent efforts as pioneer in the fusion scene with Return to Forever, his duo collaborations, classical outings, and his acoustic and trio work in the 1990s and beyond. Herzig places Corea’s creations in their historical and social contexts so any music lover can gain a fuller understanding of the incredible range of his work.
