Concert Review: Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea

Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea are each masters musicians in their own right.

McFerrin, as a vocalist and conductor, is renowned for his extraordinary vocal control and unique technique. He is perhaps best known for his 1988 hit song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”. Pianist Chick Corea (Armando Anthony “Chick” Corea) is one of the forefathers of the electric jazz fusion movement, and many of his compositions are considered jazz standards.

However, when this American duo partners up, the sum is actually greater than the parts, and the end result can only be described as sensational. On Wednesday night at the Zappa Shuni Amphitheater, each musician shared his own expertise and talent in an incredible performance that included hits from their joint 1992 album Play and improvised scat jams.
