One of the most fruitful partnerships in jazz history continues when pianist Chick Corea and vibraphonist Gary Burton play Skokie's North Shore Center for the Performing Arts. NEA Jazz Master and 18-time Grammy winner Corea has worked with Burton since the early 1970s, shortly after he left Miles Davis's band to strike out on his own. Burton is a true pioneer of the vibraphone -- the first player to employ the four-mallet technique so many modern vibraphonists use, and still arguably the best. They're touring in support of their new album Hot House
, which explores their unique take on standards by Kurt Weill, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Thelonious Monk, Lennon and McCartney and many more. The concert also features the Harlem String Quartet, who add a new dimension to the chamber-jazz masterpiece "Mozart Goes Dancing" and other favorite Chick and Gary tunes.
