“Gale force intensity, gloriously impassioned.”—Jazzwise Magazine
Legendary keyboardist, composer and bandleader Chick Corea has attained iconic status in music. He is a DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, as well as the fourth-most nominated artist in Grammy Awards history with 63 nods—and 22 wins. From straight-ahead jazz to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his career and played with a Who’s Who of jazz greats. For his return to Royce Hall, he will be joined by bass powerhouse Christian McBride, one of the most outstanding talents and celebrated musicians of his generation, and drummer extraordinaire Brian Blade to perform works from their landmark 3-CD set, Trilogy.
