Chick corea - the leprechaun


Preservation Hall Jazz Band, has held the torch of New Orleans music aloft for more than 50 years, all the while carrying it enthusiastically forward as a reminder that the history they were founded to preserve is a vibrantly living history.

Located just off the coast of northeast Florida, Amelia Island is easy to reach, but hard to forget. With 13 miles of beautiful beaches, abundant native wildlife, and pristine waters, this barrier island has long been a beloved destination for visitors and residents alike.

Corea has provided the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with a list of his favorite Monk compositions, and the band's brilliant arrangers have crafted inspired new versions of these classics. With complex yet always-swinging rhythms, poetic and beautiful harmonic progressions, and iconoclastic, tuneful melodies, Monk's compositions lend themselves to endless adaptation. The ensemble sections of these new arrangements and Chick Corea's masterful, original take on Monk's harmonies will demonstrate why this repertoire is a definitive platform for thoughtful improvisation and high quality jazz.
