Jazz San Javier is pleased to present the return of Chick Corea to the Festival, after nineteen years of his remembered concert with the group Origin and the participation as special guest of Gary Burton, in the second edition of the same. With a brilliant career that began in 1966 as leader of his own projects; with 20 Grammy awards to his credit and 51 nominations, Chick Corea is the top of the piano among the musicians of his generation, along with Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett. Innovative with his electric projects as “Return To Forever” and the “Elektric Band”, this living legend of jazz shows us his best facet of great pianist with his acoustic projects. Of them, the most brilliant is the Akoustic Band, a meeting that is perceived as the jazz event of the year, with two other jazz greats, John Patitucci and Dave Weckl.
