My Conversation with Chick Corea

Read "My Conversation with Chick Corea" reviewed by AAJ Staff


From the 1995-2003 archive: This article first appeared at All About Jazz in August 1999. It would be silly for me to even attempt to pontificate on the ramifications Chick Corea has had on this music. But it should be universal that his impact has been substantial at worst. So I will let him ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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!
