BELA FLECK AND CHICK COREA

Monday: They are virtuosos on their instruments, giants in their fields, adored figures who fill concert halls. Now jazz piano great Corea and multi-style banjo master Fleck are teaming up for a rare evening of improvisation. Both have played the tiny Dakota before. I’ve seen Fleck cross-pollinate with the Marcus Roberts Trio and with bassist Edgar Meyer, and produce remarkable evenings of new and unexpected music. With Corea, it will be more magic — with no smoke or mirrors. (7 & 9 p.m. Mon. $50-$100. Dakota Jazz Club, 1010 Nicollet Mall, Mpls. 612-332-1010.)
