The photos shown here are from a solo concert at the Barbican Centre in London on May 19, 2014, by one of the heroes of jazz piano, following the European release of a new solo recording, Portraits. Chick Corea has touched an astonishing number of bases in his distinguished career-from straight-ahead to avant garde, from bebop to fusion, from children’s songs to chamber music-all approached with a disarming and engaging enthusiasm. His solo performances distill this massive musical memory bank into an evening of free-flowing and absorbing music making.
