Event Review: Chick Corea’s Big Finish At Lincoln Center NYC

ChickCoreaJLCO2011_byFrankStewart_01

Words by Dashaun Simmons @13Rose | Photo by Frank Stewart

It’s not every day that you get to see one of the greats perform in their element. When presented with the opportunity to see a musical legend like Chick Corea, the questions is not if you should go but rather when. Jazz fans in New York City were treated to a three day engagement with Chick Corea performing alongside Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra (JALCO). On the final night, the Lincoln Center Rose Theater was filled with mostly an older crowd looking to be wowed by exceptional piano playing and great arrangements. The performance that evening went far beyond their expectations.

In between the amazing numbers performed by the incomparable JALCO, Chick Corea was able to fill the big space of the Rose Theater and give off the intimate vibe of a place like Smalls. His off the cuff humor was much appreciated but not as much as the jaw dropping arrangements of the evening. The song executions were often very lush with the kind of intricate precision that keeps Jazz in a class of its own. One big band piece that Corea originally wrote for the band at MIT in his home town of Massachusetts brought him from behind the piano. He took center stage as a conductor leading the JALCO players through the nimble arrangement. At one point during this layered composition he tag teamed with a fellow pianist taking turns on the piano until they finally joined forces playing together simultaneously. The result was a reminder of why the name Chick Corea remains in the conversation of legend.

Great solos by the JALCO members including trombone player Chris Chrenshaw, Carlos Henriquez on bass and the great trumpeter Wynton Marsalis really showcased what’s going on at Lincoln Center on a regular basis even without the additional start power of legends of the past. Corea’s wife Gayle Moran joined the band for a lovely number. At one point she stopped mid verse to express her astonishment at the ability of her husband of 40 plus years.

If you have the opportunity to see the legends of yesteryear run don’t walk to get a ticket. The quality of musicianship exhibited by key players of Chick Corea’s era isn’t on display very often these days. He’s one of the few that are still around earning the title of master. Take advantage of the fact that he’s still here. Your ears and heart will thank you.

Lil Rock wins Red Bull BC One Cypher Las Vegas 2013

Red-Bull-bc1-585x547

B-BOY “LIL ROCK” CROWNED WINNER AT RED BULL BC ONE LAS VEGAS CYPHER

Advances to Red Bull BC One National Final in Houston on August 17th

Sin City was set afire last weekend as the best b-boys from the West Coast went head to head in a fierce battle during the Red Bull BC One Cypher under the lighted canopy at the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas. The open-air location allowed more than 2,000 spectators to be treated to a night of intense battles, and ultimately, the Red Bull BC One judges Neguin (Red Bull BC One All Star), Teknyc (Skill Methodz Crew) and Floor Rock (Rock Skittles) crowned Lil Rock as the Las Vegas regional champion.

After besting 15 other prominent West Coast b-boys in Las Vegas, Lil Rock will now advance to compete in the U.S. National Finals in Houston on August 17th and battle his way to the top for the chance to represent America in the Red Bull BC One World Championship event in Seoul, South Korea this November. Hailing from Orange County, Calif., Lil Rock (Killafornia Crew) boasts accomplishments including five championship titles from Freestyle Session and a pro-am championship title. Lil Rock wowed the audience and judges throughout the night with his original and explosive signature moves including the head lotus wave and Aladdin freeze.

Screen Shot 2013-05-19 at 10.53.19 AM

“I’m humbled by the title the judges have given me,” said Lil Rock. “I honestly did not expect to win. I went into this competition with hard training and a strong focus on being the best that I can. I am looking forward to being a part of the Red Bull BC One program and continue to introduce the b-boy culture to the world.”

“Lil Rock is definitely the right winner for this cypher, said Tecnyc, one of three judges. “Seeing what he accomplished today was inspiring for all of us. He brought his personality, musicality, originality and execution. He was calm, collected and phased the components with respect. He definitely represents what this dance culture is about and pushes the envelope to the next level. I can’t wait to see him in Houston and hopefully proceed to the World Final.”

“This event was definitely history in the making. As a Vegas native, I want to work towards building our city to become the b-boy capital. All in all, Red Bull was able to make our dream into a reality,” said Ronnie, a Red Bull BC One world champion (2007) and All Star.

Now in its 10th year, Red Bull BC One has earned the reputation as a showcase for the world’s best b-boys. While many competitions focus on crew battles, Red Bull BC One’s one-on-one, single elimination battle format focuses on talents and strength of the individual dancer. Judges score the b-boys on their battle strategy, power moves, dance foundation, fresh routine, and overall style. More than 60 cyphers will be held around the world, with 16 b-boys advancing to Seoul, making this a true world championship.
