Jazz musician Chick Corea include his version of Chega De Saudade in his Grammy nominated album

 

Jazz pianist and composer, Chick Corea, has had a remarkable last 12 months. In 2012 he released not one, but two albums and now faces the rare prospect of being his own competition. Both of his albums have been nominated for Grammys and have contributed to his impressive tally of 62 Grammy nominations to date.

Hot House

Hothouse, released last year, was a collaborative effort with long time partner and vibraphonist Gary Burton. It was an eclectic mix of styles from around the world and even saw the duo perform their own arrangement of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s Chega de Saudade. Below is a live performance of the song by the two musicians.  Both play masterfully and present the song in a way we have never quite heard before.
