Four decades into an astonishing career, Chick Corea continues to be one of the most innovative and influential keyboardists of all time. Stepping on the scene first with Cab Calloway, then as a member of Miles Davis’ band, he’s gone on to collaborate with a virtually endless line of performers in a multitude of styles, from fusion to chamber music.

With a flair for innovation rivaled by Corea and few others, Béla Fleck has introduced new horizons for the banjo, coming into prominence as the frontman of Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, but branching out into jazz, rock, world beat, and even classical circles along the way.

Corea and Fleck joined forces for the Grammy-winning 2007 album The Enchantment and have toured together extensively.

Presented in collaboration with the Assemblies Committee.
