Keyboardist, composer and bandleader Chick Corea is a DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, as well as the fourth-most nominated artist in Grammy Awards history. From straight-ahead to avant-garde, bebop to jazz-rock fusion, children's songs to chamber and symphonic works, Corea has accomplished much since playing with the Miles Davis in the ’60s and ’70s. Corea has remained productive, leading bands, collaborating and performing solo.
Corea leads his Elektric Band at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Carolina Theatre in Durham. More information at carolinatheatre.org.
