Chick Corea with Bobby Mcferrin – Autumn Leaves

April 28th, 2009

This is a beautiful duo performance by the master jazz pianist Chick Corea and the incredibly versatile virtuoso vocalist Bobby Mcferrin.

It’s one of my favorite jazz Youtube videos at the moment, because it’s an amazing example of rhythmic interplay, varied textures, use of time and space, jazz idioms, and synergy and flow in a performance. There are killer solos by Chick Corea and Bobby Mcferrin. I have watched this video like 20 times by now, and I still get new ideas every time I watch it. During the performance Mcferrin makes a joke about being “not quite sure of” the line about the sunburned hands – perhaps he or his special someone doesn’t get sun burns! 5 stars! [Via Youtube]
