Bobby McFerrin & Chick Corea Duet – Spain Reply

McFarrin Corea Spain

If you love Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea, this is your opportunity to see–and hear–them together in a singularly creative version of Corea’s 1971 instrumental jazz-fusion composition, Spain. This is probably Corea’s most prominent piece, and some would consider it a modern jazz standard.

Spain appeared in its original (and most well-known) rendition on the album Light as a Feather, with performances by Corea (Rhodes electric piano), Airto Moreira (drums), Flora Purim (vocals and percussion), Stanley Clarke (bass), and Joe Farrell (flute). It has been recorded in several versions, by Corea himself as well as by other artists, including a flamenco version by Paco de Lucia and John McLaughlin in the 1980s.
