Είναι απίστευτο αλλά, μόλις προ ολίγου πληροφορήθηκα τον θάνατο από καρκίνο του Chick Corea – τρεις μέρες μετά το γεγονός [αυτές είναι οι πληροφοριακές παρενέργειες της κορωνοκατάστασης].
Εκτός από μουσικός που θαύμαζα και αγαπούσα, ήταν επίσης ένα από τα πιανιστικά μου είδωλα. Ο Chick Corea ήταν, τη στιγμή του θανάτου του, ένας νεαρός 79 χρόνων.
Ξεκινάω ένα αφιέρωμα σ’ αυτόν με το podcast που είχα ανεβάσει πέρσι στις 12 Ιουνίου, τελευταία επέτειο των γενεθλίων του.

It is unbelievable that, just a few moments before I discovered about the death of Chick Corea from cancer, three days after the event [these are the side effects on information of the coronavirus situation].
Apart from being a musician I admired and loved, he was one of my ultimate piano idols. Chick Corea was a 79 years old youngster, at the time of his death.
I start a tribute to him with last year’s podcast on the 12th of June, his b-day.

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
