Overview

Three bonafide headliners come together as Jazz piano legend Chick Corea, six-time Grammy-winning bass powerhouse and Philadelphia native, Christian McBride, and drum master Brian Blade reunite in Philadelphia for an unmatched evening of near-telepathic interplay. Reigniting the chemistry of their namesake 2013 Grammy Award winning album, the Trilogy deliver up-to-the minute takes on the Great American Songbook, Corea originals, and more!

“Both are master musicians and together we have an easy rapport,” Chick says of McBride and Blade. “There is a lot of give and take in our music. It’s always a lot of fun.”

“A luminary, ebullient and eternally youthful.”
- The New York Times

“The three have an uncanny connection, filling space with gorgeous and subtle phrasings, gliding through all manner of styles with a seemingly effortless elegance, grace, and freshness.” – AllMusic.com

 “A trio worthy of comparison to Corea’s great acoustic threesomes from Miroslav Vitous and Roy Haynes to Eddie Gomez and Paul Motian.” —JazzTimes
