chick2013 GRAMMY Winner Chick Corea reinvents himself — again. With all new music — and an all new band. Plus, fresh arrangements of Corea Classics. From sublime acoustic to brilliant electric.

Featuring the bass phenom, Hadrien Feraud. Creative force Marcus Gilmore on drums (carrying on the lineage of jazz from his grandfather, Roy Haynes). Saxes, flute, bass clarinet and innovation from Tim Garland. And a rising-sun (although from the west coast), guitarist Charles Altura.

Want to see him play Yoshi's Oakland on April 25 at 8pm and meet him afterwards? All you have to do to enter our contest is answer the following question:

    Chick Corea was born in Chelsea, Massachusetts on June 12, 1941 (my birthday is June 14th). Lifelong fan of his music having been introduced to jazz in 1968 when I was 18. Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea rocked my world! His most notable piece is of course “Spain”. Many have played this tune but there is nothing on this planet like his original recording. I want to win these tickets and yes, it would make this little lady very happy!
