That spirited tour produced two classic albums: Corea Hancock and An Evening with Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock: In Concert. Corea and Hancock have never again recorded together as a duet. The Celebrity Series checks in on that historic collaboration between two master musicians.
“[Chick Corea is]… a luminary, ebullient, and eternally youthful.” – The New York Times
“The sheer rhythmic dynamism, relentless invention and all-over-the-keyboard virtuosity of his performance… suggested, in fact, that [Herbie Hancock] may be entering a new period of creativity and rejuvenation.” – Chicago Tribune
