Since working with Miles Davis in the late-1960's, Chick Corea has been one of the top pianists in jazz. After emerging from Rochester with Chuck Mangione in the early 1970's, Steve Gadd (known among drummers as Steve God) has become the most recorded drummer in jazz and pop history. Both are legends in their own right, but Corea and Gadd have been collaborating from time to time since the mid-1970's. Four decades later they've decided to record an album and tour as a band. Aside from the two jazz superstars, the Corea/Gadd Band features one of the world's greatest guitarists, Lionel Loueke, saxophonist and flautist extraordinaire Steve Wilson, bassist Carlitos Del Puerto, and percussionist Luisito Quintero.
The Corea/Gadd Band plays Friday, October 13, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $26-$85.50. 274-3000; eastmantheatre.org.
