World-renowned jazz pianist Chick Corea brings his Elektric Band to South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong - its first Asian tour in 12 years. In this exclusive interview, the 22-time Grammy winner discusses the driving forces that have made him one of the most influential jazz figures of the past 50 years and gives us a taste of what's yet to come

You've described the Elektric Band's Asian tour as both a reunion and a "creation". What makes this band so special?

The five of us have had a lot of shared, beautiful experiences through all the tours and recordings we made. It made us a real, true group and it's always a joy to create together. This particular group has survived longer than any other band I've had.
