Add to Calendar 2013-04-25 8pm & 10pm 2013-04-25 Chick Corea & the Vigil at Yoshi's Oakland An NEA Jazz Master, 18-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 2012 Grammy win for 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, children’s songs to chamber music, along with some far-reaching forays into symphonic works –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.

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, Corea’s 17th and 18th Grammy Awards.

Corea’s 2012 schedule continues 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 Forever’s latest live album, The Mothership Returns.
