Jazz icons Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea are reuniting to embark on their first tour together in 37 years.

The renowned musicians and longtime friends will kick off a joint world tour of piano concerts in Seattle, Washington in March (15), almost four decades after they last teamed up to play acoustic grand pianos side-by-side with Hancock's Headhunters and Corea's Return to Forever bands.

Announcing the news, a "very excited" Hancock revealed he and Corea are "like family without the arguments" with "compatible outlooks on life and music".
