Photographer, writer John McCluskey contributes these photographs he took while attending the Chick Corea show on Saturday, September 30 at the Blue Note in New York.
“At the end of the performance Chick’s wife Gayle Moran joined them onstage and sang,” McCluskey wrote in his email to me. “It was a very intimate scene with Chick and Gayle collaborating and exchanging appreciative looks and banter along the way. Very memorable event. You could see their mutual love and admiration in every glance, hear it in every note.”
The drummer Steve Gadd is also pictured.
Thanks to John for sharing these exquisite photographs!
