    Indeed! By the way, I went to a Chick Corea & Gary Burton concert two years ago.
    I went to one in the summer, and they switched places in the encore, with Gary Burton playing the piano and Chick Corea playing the vibraphone! It was brilliant! :yep:

    Cool! Hmm... I remember Chick trying to play Burton's vibraphone, but I don't remember Gary playing the piano. By the way, did they perform Spain?

    I don't remember... But they probably did...

    All I can remember about 'Spain' is Michel Camilo and Tomatito! They are great too! But I don't think it is the same Spain, is it?

    It is the same Spain composed by Chick Corea. There are just many versions of it by different artists.

    As for Michel Camilo and Tomatito I prefer their second album "Spain Again" where they perform some works by Astor Piazzolla.

    as a sax player I'll have to say Bird or Coltrane, Grover Washington etc.
    Don't forget Sonny Rollins.

    As an aside from the sax, a bit of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli's always great.

    Django Reinhardt is an amazing jazz guitarist everyone should know about, he played solos with only two fingers because he injured the other two. Check him out.

    Oh, and obviously Miles Davis.
