Chick Corea – The Spanish Heart Quartet with Special Guest Ruben Blades
Welcome to Chick Corea’s brand new Spanish Heart Quartet, the flamenco-charged band of Latin rhythm masters! Keyboardist, composer and bandleader Chick Corea is a DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, with an astounding 23 GRAMMY® wins in addition to a number of Latin GRAMMY® Awards. From straight-ahead to avant-garde, bebop to jazz-rock fusion, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases since performing with the genre-shattering bands of Miles Davis.
Since he first played with the Spanish Flamenco guitar legend Paco de Lucia, Chick has built a deep catalog of Latin jazz brilliance, beginning with his modern-classic song “Spain,” and the world-groove inspired first Return to Forever album, featuring “Sometime Ago / La Fiesta.”
He’ll perform with GRAMMY® Award-winning Panamanian singer, songwriter and actor Rubén Blades, whose lyrical sophistication has made him a legend of salsa.
