AN EVENING WITH TWO,
TRUE SUPERHEROES OF SOUND.
Together, Chick Corea and Béla Fleck have been awarded 36 golden gramophones and nominated a whopping 93
times. » The fourth most-nominated artist in Grammy history, Corea has attained living legend status as a DownBeat
Hall of Famer, NEA Jazz Master, keyboard virtuoso, bandleader, and composer. He’s charted new territory in a
jaw-dropping array of genres, including fusion, flamenco, andeven classical. Believe it or not, his Piano Concerto No.
2 headlined Vienna’s Mozart Celebrations this year. Corea’s whole career is the stuff of jazz lore, an amalgamation
of influential, limit-stretching, genre-bending musical experiences that have earned him legions of fans worldwide.
» Fleck is considered by many to be the premier banjo player in the world. Some even believe Fleck has virtually
reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken
him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. Fleck has been nominated in more
Grammy categories than any other artist, including jazz, bluegrass, pop, country, gospel, composition, and world
music. » This is the duo’s second, back-by-popular-demand appearance at the ASC. Performing together,
these two master musicians weave duets out of staggering virtuosity creating mind-blowing magic.
They cross a myriad of genres, to create a casual, intimate evening with two
legends from different musical worlds.
“ ... CHICK COREA’S PIANO AND BÉLA FLECK’S BANJO NEVER ONCE CRASHED DURING
TWO HOURS OF DUETS ... INSTEAD, THE DUO TRAVELLED TOGETHER
BEAUTIFULLY ON A PATH OF MUSICAL INVENTIVENESS.” -JazzTimes
