Chick Joins Stevie Wonder Onstage for Benefit in LA

Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock

Chick joined his longtime friend Stevie Wonder in LA last month, 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.
