For Chick Corea and Gary Burton, it all came together in Boston
When Chick Corea and vibraphonist Gary Burton played solo sets at a Munich jazz festival in 1972, they were the only two musicians who agreed to partake in an all-star jam. They leaned on their improvisational instincts for an impromptu set of duo music, and you could say it went well. They’ve played together every year since, cutting seven albums and earning four Grammys for their work as a pair. The duo plays Symphony Hall on Sunday, joined by the up-and-coming Harlem String Quartet.
