On Saturday, May 18th at 8:00 & 10:30PM the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington, Long Island will host a jazz concert with THE CHICK COREA NEW TRIO.

Pianist CHICK COREA began his career in the early '60's playing alongside Blue Mitchell, Willie Bobo, Cal Tjader, Herbie Mann, Mongo Santamaria and Sarah Vaughn before he rose to prominence in Miles Davis' band. Chick played electric piano on the groundbreaking classic Bitches Brew and In A Silent Way before moving on to form his own group, Circle with bassist Dave Holland, drummer Barry Altschul and saxman Anthony Braxton. In 1971, he changed the face of jazz forever with the birth of Return to Forever, a samba-flavored ensemble featuring Stanley Clarke, Flora Purim, Airto and Joe Farrell. After a couple of albums, Chick took Return to Forever on the electric fusion route, adding the firepower of drummer Lenny White and guitarist Al DiMeola. The '80's brought the Chick Corea Elektric Band and the '90's have melded all his previous experiences into the breathtaking excursions of a mature master. Rather than rest up or merely recreate past glories, Chick Corea continually forges ahead with new music. In late-1998 he formed an acoustic three-horn sextet called Origin that revitalized jazz. In recent times, he has toured with an intimate ensemble of Origin's rhythm section (bassist Avishai Cohen and drummer Jeff Ballard) called THE CHICK COREA NEW TRIO; playing modern music that cannot be classified. Past, Present, & Futures is their debut recording.
