The Chick Corea Akoustic Band with John Patitucci and Dave Weckl
Now there’s a reunion which is already set to be the jazz event of the year! More than forty years of creativity, 51 nominations and 20 Grammy Awards! Since he launched his solo career in 1966, Chick Corea has remained at the forefront of the jazz scene, both as a highly reputed pianist revisiting the world of jazz with his acoustic group, and an innovative keyboard player within electric formations such as Return to Forever and Elektric Band.
Embracing jazz in all its forms, from the freest to those fixed in writing, Chick Corea remains one of the most significant artists of his generation, along with Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett. An immense improviser and a tremendous accompanist, he has a very rhythmic and melodic style, and fast-paced phrasing which often reflects his very percussive approach to music. On stage in the pine grove, he will be joined by bass and double bass player John Patitucci and drummer Dave Weckl. A journey through bebop, jazz rock, latin jazz and even classical music, a tour of honour for a tireless performer, one of the greatest.
