Chick Corea & Gary Burton
Hot House Tour
With the Harlem String Quartet
Concert Hall, Chamber Seating
$55, $50, $25; FC, GCC, STCC and 17 & under $15
A sumptuous jazz feast serving up the remarkable partnership between two of jazz’s longest-standing musical pioneers, Chick Corea and Gary Burton, performing material from their new album Hot House. They’ll offer their unique stew of “standards” — by composers from Kurt Weill and Antonio Carlos Jobim to Thelonious Monk and Lennon & McCartney. The multiple Grammy-winning duo also adds the Harlem String Quartet, expanding their legendary chamber-jazz repertoire on Chick’s composition “Mozart Goes Dancing” and classic Chick & Gary tunes. A very tasty concert.
