Tribute to Chick Corea & Return to Forever with
Scogeojam featuring Mike Desroches on Piano and Jimmy Halperin on Saxophone


Scogeojam is an American jazz-fusion band widely known for their “Tribute to Chick Corea” performances. Many of jazz and fusion pianist, keyboardist and composer Chick Corea’s compositions are considered jazz standards. He was a member of Miles Davis’ band in the 1960s, participated in the birth of the electric jazz fusion movement, and in the 1970s, formed Return to Forever. Along with Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner and Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea is considered one of the major jazz piano voices to emerge in the post-John Coltrane era. Join Scogeojam for a night of music spanning all of Chick Corea’s many styles including Now He Sings, Now He Sobs; Return to Forever; the Electric Band; and Akoustic Band. Having studied with jazz piano giants Lennie Tristano and Sal Mosca, saxophonist Jimmy Halperin is active on the New York jazz scene, his style described as coolly objective, surprising in its intricacy, and compelling. Anyone who loves Chick Corea, jazz, funk or fusion will love this incredible show.

I play piano, and love jazz. It is wonderful to be among so many jazz piano lovers in the Dix Hills Performing Arts Center. I so appreciate the Tribute to Jazz Piano. It is a jazz highlight for me each year. Thank you Scott Ballin for directing such a high-quality tribute. Your student are so talented and your guest artists are all jazz masters.
