It’s been four decades since Corea and Burton released their landmark debut duet album, Crystal Silence, and over the years, they’ve recorded several more truly magnificent albums.
In fact, they released a brand new album, Hot House, just last month, in which the duo explores gems from the catalogs of such diverse composers as Dave Brubeck, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Lennon & McCartney.
The two jazz legends brought their 40th anniversary concert tour to Tanglewood in Lenox back in August, and it was a magnificent, magical night, which also found them sharing the spotlight with the Harlem String Quartet for the second half of the evening. (Read review here…)
If you missed that concert or if you just want to see more, Corea & Burton will be teaming up once again – although without the string quartet this time – to grace the hallowed stage of the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy at 7:30pm on Wednesday night. Tix are $25, $38, $48 & $65.
