We continue our journey through the Chick Corea Songbook (part 1). For decades he was one of the contemporary ambassadors of American jazz, inspiring fans and other musicians all over the world. In this part of the programme, we'll feature renditions of his work by musicians from abroad and from the USA, and from across musical genres including hip-hop acts that mined the Chick Corea catalogue.
