IT'S ALIVE: Chick Corea & Bobby McFerrin "Spain" (Vienne, France, 2012)
It's Alive briefly devotes the airwaves to live music everyday at 1pm. Tune in today hear this performance and more live tracks!
Chick Corea was one of the largest contributors and influences of contemporary jazz music. His long career of composing, band-leading, and collaborating could be discussed to no end. We remember him today with an unforgettable performance of his iconic composition "Spain" alongside vocalist Bobby McFerrin.
McFerrin is known to many as the singer of "Don't Worry, Be Happy," a song that does not nearly begin to scratch the surface of his vocal ability. To see McFerrin and Corea share the stage for a song like "Spain" is to see a masterclass in becoming one with your instrument.
