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 way through his mother's CD collection. Stay tuned to the end for Mike's tribute to a parent lost to cancer.
