Chick Corea & Béla Fleck
One is a legendary pianist and NEA Jazz Master, who began his career in Miles Davis’ band and went on to shape the sound of jazz fusion with Return to Forever. The other is a world-renowned banjo player best known for his role in the bluegrass scene, including work with progressive bluegrass band New Grass Revival.
They make an unlikely duo, perhaps, but when Chick Corea and Béla Fleck toured together in the early 2000s, their piano-banjo set drew critics’ praise. Corea and Fleck’s new album, Two, features live recordings from that tour, and they’re hitting the road together again this fall.
