Jazz at the Bechtler: Tribute to Chick Corea

Jazz at the Bechtler: Tribute to Chick Corea

LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 5 AT 6 OR 8:15 PM

Program Update

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art has made the decision to require proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test (taken no more than three days prior to the program date) for staff, artists, vendors, and attendees. Note: Proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test is not required for general admission to the museum.

This past year and a half has been particularly hard on our local artists, as well as our local museums. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and in the spirit of bringing public programming back for our audiences and supporting artists' return to the stage.

The safety of our guests, staff, and artists are a top priority and we will re-evaluate this policy as needed while we continue to navigate the Delta variant.

Overview of COVID Policy Update for Jazz at the Bechtler

  • Proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test (taken no more than 3 days prior to program date) for staff, guests artists, vendors, and attendees
  • If guests do not have a vaccination card or negative test results at the time of check-in, they will be asked to return with proofs for future programming.
  • Ticket holders will be asked in advance to provide their documentation upon check-in at these programs.
  • Due to the county health mandate, masks will still be required indoors, even with vaccination or proof of negative test.
  • Masks may be removed to eat or drink and should be placed back on the face when finished. 
  • This requirement does not apply to daily museum visitation or private rental events/clients.


Jazz at the Bechtler: Tribute to Chick Corea

With a career that spanned nearly six decades, Chick Corea achieved iconic status as one of the most revered figures in contemporary jazz. To celebrate Corea’s genre-shattering music and on-stage partnerships with other jazz greats such as Eliane Elias, Herbie Hancock, and Hubert Laws, the Ziad Jazz Quartet and special guest Martin Bejerano pay tribute to the piano master. Bejerano joins Ziad Rabie (saxophone), Al Sergel (drums), and Ron Brendle (bass), to perform songs such as “Windows,” “Armando’s Rhumba,” “Spain,” and many more!  

Get to know Martin Bejerano

Martin Bejerano is a two-time winner of the prestigious "New Jazz Works" composition and ensemble development grant by Chamber Music America in 2010 and 2017, and the “Bacardi Choice” commission by the Dranoff International 2 Piano Foundation and Bacardi, Int. in 2013. His commissioned composition, “Fantasia de Tres Mundos" for 2 Pianos,” was premiered in April 2014 at the South Miami Dade Cultural Arts Center and has since been performed numerous times internationally and recorded by award-winning piano duo Stephanie and Saar.

Martin has performed for 18 years with legendary jazz drummer and Grammy award-winning artist Roy Haynes. In 2004, their recording "Fountain of Youth" was nominated for a Grammy award for Best Instrumental Jazz Album--Martin’s first recording on a major label. In January 2002, Martin also joined internationally acclaimed guitarist Russell Malone’s quartet, touring and recording with the group for over eight years, while continuing to tour with the Roy Haynes Quartet to this day.

Having has also performed with the likes of the Christian McBride Band, Dave Holland, Pat Metheny, Ron Carter, Ignacio Berroa, Lonnie Plaxico, Bryan Lynch, Adam Nussbaum, Roy Hargrove, Arturo Sandoval, Mingus Big Band, John Faddis, Wycliffe Gordon, Rick Margitza, and even traded choruses with the legendary Chick Corea, one can easily gain a sense of Bejerano’s formidable talent on the keyboard. Check out the below video of Martin trading at the piano with non-other than the late Chick Corea.
