Bio

The Chick Corea Elektric Band is one of very few jazz ensembles to truly revolutionize the artform. Their eponymous debut album came like a bolt from the blue in 1985, marrying the freight-train velocity of jazz, rock, latin and funk with sonic inventions that still sound futuristic.

This is the classic quintet — Chick Corea on piano, Dave Weckl on drums, John Patitucci on bass, Eric Marienthal on sax, Frank Gambale on guitar — that produced an untouchable string of albums in the 1980s. The shockwave of their influence runs from hip-hop to EDM to today’s most essential jazz searchers like Snarky Puppy.

This exclusive tour is one of the highlights of Chick’s ongoing 75th Birthday celebration, a full year of globe-spanning creative adventures, culminating in a two-month residency at New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club, where the Elektric Band will be completing its tour.
