Chick Corea's legendary trio to play Jazz Alley

by E. Joyce Glasgow - SGN A&E Writer

Chick Corea
December 10-12
Dimitriou's Jazz Alley


The legendary trio of jazz luminaries, Chick Corea (piano/composer), Stanley Clarke (bass/composer) and Lenny White (drums), will be performing for three nights next week in a highly anticipated series of club dates at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley.

Fans of the "Return to Forever" band of the 1970s, which combined jazz with rock, taking jazz into what at that time was the whole new direction of "fusion," will recognize this famous triad of musicians. All three have gone on to successful solo careers and have now come back together to do a historic, extensive, and acclaimed world tour, including festivals and venues both large and small. Seattleites will have the luxury of enjoying this dynamic trio in the intimate atmosphere of the Jazz Alley. Their music is lyrical, exciting and highly memorable, and their musicianship, camaraderie and refined level of playing together as musical colleagues is not to be missed.

Chick Corea is the recipient of 15 Grammy Awards, and has been nominated 51 times. His popular and distinctive compositions have become part of the standard repertoire for jazz musicians. He has played and/or recorded with a who's who of the music world, including Miles Davis, Gary Burton, Roy Haynes, Pat Metheny, Bobby McFerrin, Bela Fleck, Dave Holland, Airto Moreira, Flora Purim, Jack DeJohnette, and Al DiMeola. In recent years, he has also turned his attention towards composing contemporary classical music, including his "String Quartet No. 1," written especially for the acclaimed Orion String Quartet.

Multiple Grammy-winner Stanley Clarke has become well known for his television and film scores and has played with a variety of musicians including McCoy Tyner, Pharaoh Sanders, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Stewart Copeland, Jean-Luc Ponty and George Duke.

Lenny White has played with jazz greats, including Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Gato Barbieri, Gil Evans, Jaco Pastorius and Freddie Hubbard.

In January 2010, Chick Corea will receive the highest honor bestowed by Chamber Music America at the organization's annual National Conference in New York. The Richard J. Bogomolny Award is given each year to an individual who has had a great impact on the field of chamber music over a significant period of time. Previous recipients have included Rudolph Serkin, Alice Tully and Elliott Carter.

For jazz lovers, this special engagement at Jazz Alley is a must-see. Advanced tickets are required for these performances of the Corea/Clarke/White trio.
