Chick Corea & Bela Fleck Concert Review, Austin, TX, April 15, 2016

I’m a pretty big fan of the late 60s/early 70s heavy fusion jazz movement that Chick Corea was a huge part of.  I caught the Return to Forever reunion show weveral years ago and it was great.  I’d also seen Bela Fleck and the Flecktones several times back in Virginia as his bassist, Victor Wooten, was from my hometown area.  They played there often.

When I first saw the show announcement I jumped on tickets, not paying attention to the fact that it was just Chick and Bela and no backing band.  Oh well.  Man, was I surprised when the show started.  It was incredible.

Two master musicians whose respective instruments worked well together.  Perfectly even.  It really was a great show.  I stayed through half of the second set as I had some late night dinner plans and yet another show to see closer to my house.

I highly recommend going to see this tour if you like either musician.  Thankfully no pictures are allowed inside the venue during performances.  I was able to just zone out and listen to some beautiful music.
