• 10 breathtaking bands
• 30 genius musicians
• 4 awe-inspiring weeks

This May Be the Greatest Assembly of Jazz Musicians by One Artist — in History.

Fifty years ago, Chick arrived in New York City and embarked upon his legendary career as one of the great jazz pianists, composers and bandleaders of our time. And he amassed quite a few friends along the way.

Now he's back. With friends. And in a big way.

Chick celebrated his 60th birthday with a sold-out three-week stint at the Blue Note jazz club in NYC. Every moment was filmed and recorded as the Rendezvous in New York project and the CD went on to garner a Grammy award.

So how does a jazz legend top that for his 70th birthday?
By playing with 10 different bands over 4 glorious weeks throughout November. Where it all began — at the Blue Note, NYC.

Fly, drive or walk — just get yourself to New York and be part of this historic party.

Return to Forever Unplugged, live in New YorkReturn to Forever Unplugged
