Jazz Legend Chick Corea’s Never Ending Musical Journey
By Tom Alexander
FORT LAUDERDALE (Special to TSD After Dark) I saw Chick Corea again for about the thirtieth time in my life I guess. Its probably more than thirty times. I’ll be honest, I lost count about five years ago. I have seen him in nearly every possible context – duos, trios, quartets, quintets, sextets, septets, and with an orchestra in Purchase, New York playing the American debut of his first piano concerto way back in 1986. I was lucky that day, as I took my dad with me. It was the only time he ever got to hear Chick. He passed away later that year. The special moment of having my two heroes in life meet face to face was one of the great memories of my life.
