Chick Corea & Herbie Hancock Symphony Center, Chicago IL The Palladium, Carmel, IN April 17-18, 2015 Chicago and Indianapolis hosted the final leg of Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea's North American tour.

Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock Duet Zellerbach Hall Berkeley, CA March 19, 2015 The two pianists needed no introduction. Taking the stage at Cal Performances, they turned to each other, old friends reuniting, and bantered about their various past visits to Berkeley, California. This was the fourth date in a tour which would culminate with four European engagements, but it was by no means their first onstage duet. The two first toured together as a ...

Chick Corea Trio: Trilogy

Read "Chick Corea Trio: Trilogy" reviewed by

Remember when CDs were so expensive to make that record companies would release double albums and remove a track or two, just so that it could fit on a single CD? Well, there may be many negatives about the state of the music industry today---despite this being a time when so much music is being made that, like the glory days in the 1960s/70s, it seems like anything is possible...there's just no more industry support to help any of it ...

Chick Corea: The Ultimate Adventure: You Can't Return to Forever

Read "The Ultimate Adventure: You Can't Return to Forever" reviewed by

The Beatles are gone. I know that. But I keep thinking if I buy just one more Paul McCartney CD, maybe the old magic will return. Maybe. But it never does. Paul McCartney is like that. You know how great he was with the Beatles. You even know how great some of his solo records were. And even though you know he'll never write another “Band on the Run," and surely he'll never write another “Sgt. ...

Chick Corea: The Vigil

Read "Chick Corea: The Vigil" reviewed by

While he's never come close to falling out of the spotlight, there's little denying Chick Corea's two Return to Forever reunion tours and resultant live recordings of the past half decade have been two of the keyboard star's most eagerly anticipated events, considerably raising both his visibility and viability. That The Vigil--the name of both his new group and its much-anticipated debut recording--has been garnering even greater buzz only means that there's a whole lot to live up to.

Chick Corea and Gary Burton with the Harlem String QuartetFlynn Center for the Performing ArtsBurlington, VTOctober 19, 2012The sound itself was absolutely sublime as it emanated from the instruments of pianist Chick Corea and vibraphonist Gary Burton on October 19, 2012 at The Flynn Center in Burlington, Vermont. The ringing clarity of the notes pealing from Corea was perfectly in proportion to the warm glowing flow of sound as it arose from Burton. During those ...

Chick Corea & Gary Burton: Chick Corea & Gary Burton: Hot House

Read "Chick Corea & Gary Burton: Hot House" reviewed by

The creative connection upon which vibraphonist Gary Burton ruminates to such length, in his essay for Hot House, is evident from the first instrumental exchanges with longtime collaborator, pianist Chick Corea. Burton and Corea complete each others' thoughts throughout “Can't We Be Friends," sounding as effortless and natural--arguably more so--as the seamless improvisations that earmarked their very first recorded project together forty years ago, Crystal Silence (ECM, 1972).The symbiosis recurs throughout the ten tracks here, which span standards ...
