Ending the Year with a Bang ...
Chick closed out 2013 by honoring his friend and musical compatriot Herbie Hancock, as Herbie received the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor at a star-studded event in Washington, DC, in front of an audience that included President Obama and the First Lady — plus fellow honorees Carlos Santana, Billy Joel, Shirley MacLaine and Martina Arroyo. Herbie was blown away as Chick and an all-star band (including Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette, Wayne Shorter and Terence Blanchard) played a killin' version of "Walkin'."
Just days later, Chick joined his longtime friend Stevie Wonder in LA, where Stevie recreated his timeless album Songs in the Key of Life in a concert packed wall-to-wall with musical stars, benefitting the charity House Full of Toys. Chick was invited to sit-in on Stevie's fantastic fusion instrumental "Contusion," (reminiscent of Chick's Return to Forever innovations). The standing-room crowd at the Nokia Center rocked to the full album for three hours straight, thanks to guests Herbie Hancock, John Mayer, Esperanza Spalding, India.Arie, and many from the original album personnel, including keyboardist Greg Phillinganes.
