Famed Jazz Pianist and Composer Chick Corea has always been most challenged creatively by working with talented players, reaching from his early years with Blue Mitchell, Herbie Mann, Stan Getz and Miles Davis to his own leadership of memorably fascinating groups such as Return to Forever, the Elektric Band, the Akoustic Band, and his Five Peace Band.
For this performance, he brings together bass powerhouse Christian McBride and drum master Brian Blade in a trio that earned 2 Grammy Awards for their first outing, 2014's landmark 3-CD set Trilogy.
"Both are master musicians and together we have an easy rapport," Chick says of McBride and Blade. "There is a lot of give and take in our music. It's always a lot of fun."
The trio's long-awaited follow-up album, Trilogy 2, arrived last year. The two-disc set features tracks hand-picked by Chick from throughout the trio's 2016 world tour, capturing the feel of an electrifying concert program. The material spans a range of inspirations, from American Songbook standards to jazz classics, reaching back into Chick own catalog as well as that of some of his most renowned collaborators, including Miles Davis and Joe Henderson.
