Hope for a champion performance...


I can't disagree with anything Michael says! This is why it's great Seven Days brought together such a varied group of jazz experts. My jazz knowledge springs from a passionate love of the music, and absolutely no real technical knowledge whatsoever.

Michael's educated opinion has given me hope for Chick Corea and Béla Fleck! It also prompted me to do some further research. Check out this video of a Corea tune, Spain with the two gentlemen in question, as well as vocalist Bobby McFerrin. This video is a little quiet, so turn up your computer speakers, but this is a great interpretation of an old Return to Forever favorite.

Nice video. It's great to have an opportunity to see these guys play together. Now I'll have to think about adding them to my jazz fest wish list.

Hey, this is from the DVD I was talking about...great performance and great concert all around. Bobby McFerrin is really unique from what I can hear and later in this show, he and Chick started involving the audience in singing "Smile." One lady in the audience sang a whole chorus on her own with Chick playing behind her and she was surprisingly very very good!
