Chick Corea: Creative Giant

By Published: May 16, 2011
AAJ: So is music life to you or is music just a part of life to you?

CC: It's whatever it is you say it is right now. And then if you ask your friend, your boyfriend, or your husband, and they say "this is what it is," then that's what it is. It's what we think it is. To me it's a wonderful way to spend a lifetime.
