Chick Corea (piano), John Patitucci (bass), Dave Weckl (drums)
Chick Corea returns to San Sebastian in an acoustic trio with John Patitucci and Dave Weckl, the musicians to enjoy the greatest rapport in recent times with the brilliant North American pianist, one of jazz’s most popular and influential figures. Having trained alongside Miles Davis and marked the trend as the keyboard player on Return to Forever, Corea has addressed all kinds of projects and collaborations, while recording his own albums. A Grammy winner on no less than 18 occasions, Chick Corea has earned the status of living legend thanks to five decades of unprecedented creativity and an artistic production which can be qualified as mind-boggling. All of his previous performances at the festival, from that historical show at the Velodrome in 1981 until the last one in 2014, have left their mark on the people of Donostia. He received the Donostiako Jazzaldia Award in 1998, the accolade presented by Heineken Jazzaldia to the artists who light the way for coming generations.
