Chick Corea Trilogy
with Christian McBride and Brian Blade

Events
Performance
 

American jazz legend Chick Corea brings together bass powerhouse Christian McBride and drum master Brian Blade for this special concert.

Their first outing as a trio, in 2014, resulted in a three-CD set, Trilogy, which earned two Grammy Awards. Corea, who began playing with the genre-shattering bands of Miles Davis in the late 1960s and early ’70s has moved from straight-ahead to avant-garde, bebop to jazz-rock fusion, and children’s songs to symphonic works, all while racking up 63 Grammy nominations and 22 wins. Bassist Christian McBride is a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with the depth and grounding of a seasoned journeyman. Drummer Brian Blade, who has performed with Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Wayne Shorter, Seal, Bill Frisell, and Emmylou Harris, completes the rhythm section.
