National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master and 16-time Grammy-winning pianist Chick Corea joins forces with award-winning vibraphonist Gary Burton for their Hot House Tour with the Harlem String Quartet. Since 1972 the duo has been one of the jazz worldâs most celebrated collaborations, performing improvisation-laced programs uncommon in their popularity, innovation and creativity. Corea and Burton will perform material from their new album Hot House, exploring their unique takes on standards by composers from Kurt Weill and Antonio Carlos Jobim to Thelonious Monk and Lennon & McCartney. Tonightâs performance is an extraordinary opportunity for audiences to observe witty, playful and artistically-engaged musicians as they explore the boundaries of jazz.
