Chick Corea: Trilogy
Chick Corea: Trilogy

Performance Information

If one word were needed to encapsulate Chick Corea’s illustrious 60-year career, “buoyancy” might work just fine…. The combination of Corea, bassist Christian McBride, and drummer Brian Blade will stand among [Corea’s] finest [trios]. The pair are Corea’s equal in both artistic breadth and technical facility, but most of all, they can match him on the buoyancy meter. Downbeat, November 2019 issue, four-star review of Trilogy 2

It doesn’t get more “A-list” than this! Jazz piano legend, NEA Jazz Master, and 22-time Grammy-winner Chick Corea takes the stage in an evening of near-telepathic interplay with two of the music’s most elite Gen-X masters: the mind-boggling bass virtuoso and six-time Grammy-winner Christian McBride and Brian Blade, “one of those rare jazz drummers artistically powerful enough to direct the sound of a whole ensemble” (New York Times). Hot on the heels of their sophomore CD, Trilogy 2, the trio deliver up-to-the-minute takes on the Great American Songbook, Corea originals, Monk classics, and more.
