9/27: Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White at HOB

Posted By on Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 4:12 PM

Back in 1973, pianist Chick Corea, bassist Stanley Clarke and drummer Lenny White got together for the first time during a weeklong gig that would ultimately launch their lineup of Corea’s fusion mega-group Return to Forever. Last summer, the three reunited with Al Di Meola to revisit some of the band’s electric classics. But on their current tour, Corea sheds the keyboards and synths, Clarke leaves his electric bass at home and the focus shifts to an acoustic trio that will make the most of the telepathic communication these musicians have developed and honed over the years. Recalling the interactive approach that made Corea’s 1968 album Now He Sings, Now He Sobs a classic of the modern era, the trio covers a range of material, including favorites like “Spain,” “Steps — What Was” and “What Game Shall We Play Today?” Corea, Clarke and White play House of Blues (308 Euclid Ave., 216.523.2583) at 8 tonight in a benefit concert for the Human Fund. Tickets: $32.50 advance, $35 day of the show. — C. Andrew Hovan
