Chick Corea

On Sunday I went to see a splendid concert at The Barbican. It involved Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and Chick Corea with Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. The Flecktones involved Mr Fleck on the banjo and he was phat. Victor Wooten on bass who is a bit of a technical genius and he did loads of slap bass and things. But the best bit was Chick Corea who was insanely outrageous and super lyrical with his piano playing especially when comping in solos...Stanley Clarke was a groove machine and Lenny White was doing goodly things on the drums. It went really quickly and then everyone came back on stage for an encore and they did Spain. Everyone had a solo and Stan and Victor had a slap-off on stage. As it were. The Barbican was a bit too big for it but it was really good.

But it took 2 hours to drive back.
