RETURN TO CHICK COREA is a quartet-based music tribute to the great jazz composer, enhanced with additional original compositions created in the characteristic Spanish-infused style of Corea.

The RETURN TO CHICK COREA band was formed as a concept exchange between bassist Bruce Phares and pianist Francesco Crosara. A spirited conversation after a lovely duet performance led to the idea of a concert of all-Chick-Corea compositions, a natural for Crosara’s Corea-influenced keyboard virtuosity, as well as Phares’ style of bass playing. After an initial performance, Francesco, Bruce, and sax-wizard Alexey Nikolaev solidified the concept into the “Return to Chick Corea” band with the great Mark Ivester (drums).
