Review: Hancock and Corea - just two (great)
The house lights never dimmed at the Academy of Music on Saturday night, just one indication that the duo performance by Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea was going to be more informal than most. The two jazz piano giants strolled casually on stage with no fanfare, arms slung around each other's shoulders, and picked up a pair of microphones.

Resolved Question: Best Jazz Albums (Chick
So I am super pumped, I get to see both Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea in concert.
I've heard a lot of their stuff, and it is awesome!! But I don't actually own any of their stuff.
I really can only afford to get two albums (one from each artist), but I'm not sure which to get.
I would like to do a little listening to familiarize myself with the artists before I see them live.

Resolved Question: Why don't other asian
except for India. I've been always wondering why any other countries in asia like china, pilipin, vietnam, thailand and japan don't have complicated rhythmic system like pungmulnori and samulnori in corea?
I see only corean, Italian, spaniards, african and indian people have various and complex rhythm culture? Corea has the most various and complex rhythm among those three cultures though...
why don't other countries in asia have rhythmical music like corea?
