Στις 12 Ιουνίου 1941, στο Chelsea της Μασαχουσέτης γεννήθηκε ο Armando Anthony Corea, ευρύτερα γνωστός ως Chick Corea – ο μεγαλύτερος, εν ζωή πιανίστας της jazz μαζί με τον Keith Jarrett, πρωτοπόρος και καθοριστική φυσιογνωμία του fusion, μουσικός με πολυσχιδή δραστηριότητα που εκτείνεται πέρα από τα όρια της jazz στο χώρο της κλασικής ερμηνείας και σύνθεσης. Και προσωπική μου αδυναμία.
Από μια καριέρα διάρκειας 55 χρόνων [πρώτο άλμπουμ ως leader το Tοnes For Joan’s Bones του 1966], το μόνο που μπορεί να κάνει κανείς είναι ένα στιγμιαίο, “συνειρμικό” podcast. Ούτως ή άλλως ο Chick Corea είναι κάποιος στο οποίο [θα] επανερχόμαστε συχνά.

On June 12, 1941, in Chelsea, Massachusetts, Armando Anthony Corea was born better known as Chick Corea – the greatest living jazz pianist along with Keith Jarrett, a pioneer and defining figure of fusion, a musician with a multifaceted activity that extends beyond the confines of jazz, in the field of classical interpretation and composition. And one of my personal preferences.
From a 55-year career [his first album as leader in 1966’s Tones For Joan’s Bones], all one can do is an instant, “associative” podcast. Anyway Chick Corea is someone we [will] come back to very often.
