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.

In fact, he laughed and made a joke about plastic utensils. It was quite funny. I’d share it with you all, but the joke is classified.” (more…)
