Chick Corea Akoustic Band: Live!

Read "Live!" reviewed by Jim Worsley


A posthumous review of a live record sounds like an oxymoron. Particularly when it seems that Chick Corea was with us only yesterday.

This addition to their rich library is played with as much enthusiasm as it is heart, and with as much passion as it ...

Read "Remembering Chick" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


The jazz world lost Chick Corea this February and we bastards miss him like everyone else. Well, maybe not like fans of electric-era Return to Forever, but we certainly miss him. In this episode, we focus on some of Chick's acoustic music, looking at some early works that show both his melodic and avant-garde sides, and his tribute to a predecessor with a considerably less sunny personality than Chick himself. Pop matters delves into strange tributaries as Mike works his ...
