Chick Corea Trilogy with Christian McBride and Brian Blade

Oct 15, 2019
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Flynn Center for the Performing Arts

Seminal jazz keyboardist, composer, and bandleader Chick Corea brings together bass powerhouse Christian McBride and drum master Brian Blade in a two-time Grammy-winning trio. Corea has attained iconic status as a DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, as well as the fourth-most nominated artist in Grammy history (63 nods; 22 wins). Four-time Grammy-winner and former Burlington Discover Jazz Festival artist-in-residence McBride is a force of nature, fusing the fire and fury of a virtuoso with depth, while Brian Blade, a multi-talented young veteran, has drummed for artists such as Daniel Lanois, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Wayne Shorter, Seal, Bill Frisell, and Emmylou Harris. "Together we have an easy rapport," Chick says of McBride and Blade. "There is a lot of give and take in our music. It's always a lot of fun."

Price: $10 with valid UVM ID
