Title: RIP Chick Corea
Post by: Antdude on February 11, 2021, 07:12:56 PM
Sad news today, jazz legend Chick Corea died at 79 of cancer.

Although his music was primarily in the jazz arena, I daresay he influenced many artists practicing in all genres of music. His career jump-started with Miles Davis in '68, and he never looked back. Return To Forever was one of the most influential jazz-fusion bands ever, and the music they created is still being played and imitated today.

I was fortunate enough to see him live twice: With RTF in '76 when "Romantic Warrior" was released, and again two years later when "MusicMagic" came out. He always seemed low-key, yet almost giddy when he played live. That was what I'll remember most, his joy in performing for an audience.

What a keyboard player!.... RIP

Nice story Antdude.....makes it a celebration of Life.  I got into his music because of Drummer Dave Weckl who was involved with the Corea's Acouktic and Elektric Bands
