Chick Corea & Herbie Hancock to Perform Together at Carnegie Hall, 4/9/2015
Carnegie Hall today announced that a duo performance by critically-acclaimed and award-winning pianists Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock has just been added to its 2014-2015 concert season. The performance-which will take place on Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage-will feature the two master musicians who share more than forty years of professional and personal history in a rare duet concert. For over half a century, Hancock and Corea have blazed their own paths of artistic innovation at the keyboard. From the great Miles Davis bands of the 1960s, and the genre-shattering Headhunters and Return to Forever bands of the 1970s, to the unparalleled, award-winning careers the artists have enjoyed since, Hancock and Corea are among the most important influences on jazz and beyond of our time.
In 1978, Columbia Records released the duo recording An Evening with Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea, and a live acoustic recording CoreaHancock followed the next year. Of their work together, Hancock once noted, ``When I listen back to some of the duet tracks we've made, half the time I can't tell who's Chick and who's me.'' Corea adds, "There is a very deep bond between the two of us.''
Tickets for this performance are available now to Carnegie Hall 2014-2015 season subscribers. Tickets go on sale to the general public on August 25.
