Corea and the Corona virus.
Chick Corea came to give a concert at Geneva’s Victoria Hall just as the Swiss Federal Authorities declared a ban on public assemblies of more than 1000 people. The first and most significant cancellation is the Geneva Motor Show where 600,000 visitors were expected over 10 days. This will have major economic and perhaps even image repercussions for the state of Geneva.
Chick’s concert went ahead, but to comply with the new regulations some segments of the 1640 seat hall were closed. Thus enough people were turned away (and reimbursed) to bring the numbers below the 1000 upper limit .
Again, an outstanding concert by this 1941 musician. Here some publicity for the essence of this concert with base player Christian McBride & drummer Brian Blade. A wonderful experience.
