Whether it’s Akoustic or Elektric, Chick Corea has consistently risen the bar in music many times over. His career boasts extended collaborations with too many historic musicians to name. Moreover compositionally, he reaches even further with many tunes considered standards by the jazz community. For all of this and more, we celebrate pianist, composer, and artist Chick Corea for leading us in innovation through many decades and changes in jazz and popular music. Happy Birthday Chick, we look forward to many more years of your influence.

My favorite Chick Corea recording is the album Light As a Feather, with Return To Forever. “Spain” alone is worth the purchase. I reviewed a show he did at the Highline two months ago and he did a solo performance of Stevie Wonder’s “Pastime Paradise.” I HOPE he records that somewhere down the line.
