The Musician’s Performance Bundle: A Work in Progress, Children’s Songs Songbook & Forever Songbook Vol.1
As Chick performed all over the world for over 50 years, his insights into musicianship and the craft of musical performance, improvisation and composition stand in a league of their own. To share these findings with musicians and allow them to interpret and build on his musical compositions, Chick created three books (exclusive to shop.chickcorea.com) to teach and inspire.
This Musician’s Performance Bundle includes:
A Work in Progress: On Being a Musician: A document for all musicians to study, full of musical knowledge unlike any other. This book contains Chick’s Personal Policies as a Musician as well as education from Chick himself on Playing the Piano, Comping, Making Time, and Composing.
Children’s Songs: 20 Compositions for Piano: The complete set of piano sheet music for all 20 of Chick’s Children’s Songs, written for solo piano and inspired by Bartók. Chick returned to these compositions time and again and invites you to do the same.
“Re-harmonize, improvise, orchestrate. Take a child’s approach and fool around with them. Then write some of your own.” - Chick
Forever Songbook Vol 1:Music mostly from Chick's monumental first Return to Forever album, which is still considered to be one of the most influential and important modern jazz records in music history. Includes songs such as "Crystal Silence", "500 Miles High" and "What Game Shall We Play today" -- now modern jazz standards!
The Musician’s Performance Bundle is perfect for musicians looking for education, inspiration, and a solid and exciting collection of original compositions to add to their repertoire.
