Jazz Giants, Chick Corea & Gary Burton, Perform A Gorgeous Set On NPR's 'Tiny Desk Concert'

Watch Chick Corea & Gary Burton Take Over NPR's 'Tiny Desk'

As two of jazz's most celebrated musicians and still-touring performers, Chick Corea and Gary Burton should need no introduction. As peers, they've recorded more albums and won more awards than any one musician could possibly dream of. Together, they make for a masterful piano-vibes duo, as evidenced by a recent stop at NPR's offices for the latest segment of Tiny Desk Concert.

As the show's most distinguished guests to date, Corea and Burton are amongst a handful of musicians without any need to prove themselves or stack up to what's come before, as anyone who's ever tried to squeeze into the between Bob Boilan's desk and the bookshelf should already be well aware of their resumes. The duo performed selections from their two collaborative albums Crystal Silence and The New Crystal Silence, which is available for you to see in the clip below. Chick Corea and Gary Burton's latest collaborative album, 2012's Hot House, is available for you to purchase on iTunes today.
