Tommy Smith & Pete Johnstone play Chick Corea

One of the modern legends of jazz, pianist, composer, Chick Corea, passed away in February. The leading Scottish saxophonist, Tommy Smith was a friend. He knew and played with Corea, and was in regular contact. Tonight he’ll celebrate Chick’s life and music, in duet with pianist, Pete Johnstone. 

There are no half measures in Tommy’s musical life, so expect a big-hearted session that pays tribute to a musician who gave so much to our modern jazz world, from electric effervescence to children’s songs; from straight ahead modern jazz to latino fireworks. And how will the master saxophonist approach “Spain” and “Crystal Silence''; “La Fiesta” and “Bud Powell''?

A special musical moment.
