An NEA Jazz Master, 20-time Grammy winner, brilliant American composer and keyboard virtuoso, Chick Corea has attained living legend status after five decades of unparalleled creativity and an artistic output that is simply staggering.

From his 2013 Grammy wins for Best Instrumental Composition and Best Improvised Jazz Solo, through his enormously prolific career, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his illustrious career – from straight ahead to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, childrenʼs songs to chamber music, along with some far-reaching forays into symphonic works –while maintaining a standard of excellence that is aweinspiring. A tirelessly creative spirit, Chick continues to forge ahead, continually reinventing himself in the process.


Innovator and Pioneer
Chick began his career with apprenticeships with the likes of Stan Getz, Sarah Vaughan and Miles Davis's band, where he participated in such landmark sessions as In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew. Embarking on a solo career in 1966, Chick has been at the forefront of jazz, both as a renowned pianist forging new ground with his acoustic jazz bands and as an innovative electric keyboardist with Return to Forever and the Elektric Band. His extensive discography boasts numerous essential albums, beginning with his 1968 classic, Now He Sings, Now He Sobs.


Recent Projects
Chick continues to make a significant impact on the scene, as evidenced by 2007ʼs Grammy-winning The Enchantment (duets with banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck), 2008ʻs Grammy-winning The New Crystal Silence (duets with longstanding collaborator Gary Burton), 2009ʼs Returns (documenting Return to Foreverʼs 2008 reunion tour) and 2009ʼs Grammy-winning Five Peace Band Live (with John McLaughlin, Christian McBride, Kenny Garrett and Vinnie Colaiuta).

In 2012, Corea took home two Grammys, including Best Jazz Instrumental Solo, for Forever, the 2-CD set recorded on his acoustic trio tour with Return to Forever bandmates Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. The two honors were, remarkably, Coreaʼs 17th and 18th Grammy Awards.

Coreaʼs 2012 schedule continued his unbroken string of productivity, with three world tours and four new albums: the critically-acclaimed Further Explorations (with Eddie Gomez and Paul Motian); The Continents: Concerto for Jazz Quintet and Chamber Orchestra, an ambitious new classical release and a crowning achievement in his work as a master composer; Hot House, a transcendent new set of standards in his Grammy-winning duet with Gary Burton; and the upcoming release of Return to Foreverʼs latest live album, The Mothership Returns.
