Musicians of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra expand the Corea songbook with their own arrangements. Chick Corea joins them on acoustic piano for Matrix, Crystal Silence and Tones for Joan’s Bones.

5/27 God’s Trombones “The trombone comes the closest to the human voice with its bent pitches, scoops, and smears, and that very human quality is evident in everything that James Weldon Johnson wrote,” says JALC Orchestra trombonist Chris Crenshaw. Crenshaw draws on his gospel roots to connect secular music to poetry in this sprawling suite based on the Johnson poem.
