Chick Corea's newest trio features the 16-time Grammy-winning pianist, NEA Jazz Master, and Kennedy Center Living Jazz Legend in the company of a stellar rhythm tandem: Grammy-winning bassist Christian McBride (Sting, Pat Metheny, McCoy Tyner), one of the most outstanding talents and celebrated musicians of his generation, and drummer extraordinaire Brian Blade (Herbie Hancock, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell) a longstanding member of the Wayne Shorter Quartet.
The three initially forged an indelible chemistry as the rhythmic backbone of the Five Peace Band in 2009, when Blade took the drum chair for the band's Asian and American tours.
Their instant, easy rapport naturally stimulated the idea of yet another outlet for Corea's tireless creativity. And a new trio was born. As a trio, they'll take up the musical dialogue that started there--dynamic, deeply interactive and irrepressibly swinging.
