The music world lost NEA Jazz Master Chick Corea who, as Charles Lloyd Tweeted, "left town" on February 9, 2021. Chick was always generous with his time granting AAJ several interviews over the years. Jim Worsley's October interview with Chick would represent his last. A personal favorite of All About Jazz, we will miss Chick's music, his kind spirit and his positive energy. Barche Lamsel indeed!
All About Jazz published nearly 100 articles about Chick and you can view the entire archive here.
"Lyric Portrait uses words by Al Jarreau to Chick Corea's iconic jazz standard, "Spain." This drawing is made only of hand lettered lyrics in ink, honoring a man whose music changed my life forever." Forrest Young
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
