A DownBeat Hall of Famer, NEA Jazz Master, 22-time Grammy winner, and keyboard virtuoso, Chick Corea has attained living legend status after five decades of unparalleled creativity and an artistic output that is simply staggering. Chick is the fourth-most-nominated artist in the history of the Grammys, with 63 nominations. He’s also earned 3 Latin Grammy Awards, the most of any artist in the Best Instrumental Album category.

From straight ahead to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, children’s songs to chamber music, along with some far-reaching forays into symphonic works, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his illustrious career while maintaining a standard of excellence that is awe-inspiring. A tirelessly creative spirit, Chick continues to forge ahead, continually reinventing himself in the process.

Bass virtuoso Christian McBride is one of the most important figures in jazz in the last 20 years, and figures prominently in the renewed interest in the music among young people. Since moving to New York in 1989, he has worked with the best of the best in the jazz, pop and rock worlds, and has led his own groups in the meantime. He has shared the stage with musical luminaries like McCoy Tyner, Sting, Kathleen Battle, and Diana Krall.

Multi-talented young veteran Brian Blade is one of the most widely respected artists in the jazz world, not only for his playing, but for his warm, generous personality. He is known as the drummer for many heroes of the music world, including Daniel Lanois, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Wayne Shorter, Seal, Bill Frisell, and Emmylou Harris. Blade is always searching for the balance that gives a song a personal story with an outward reaching resonance.
