RIP Chick Corea

Return To Forever, mr. Chick Corea...He would've been 80-eighty- on June 12 this year.

1st time I saw him he played his Children's Songs album SOLO piano at Sala Palatului, at the 1st Camel Jazz Alive Summit Festival, back in 1993 (April 6th).

He came to Romania five more times, last time in Bucharest in 2012 with Gary Burton, also at Sala Palatului. In 1998 he played Sala Palatului again on his Origin tour. In 2008 (October 26th) he played with the FIVE PEACE BAND again at Sala Palatului, all-start band together with John McLaughlin, Kenny Garrett & the great Vinnie Colaiuta on drums (I saw him again with Sting -Back to Bass live in 2013). In 2009 he was here again. Then In 2017 he played here for the last time, in Timisoara at the Jazz Tm Fest. 

He was at his best with Return to Forever, his group from 1971 featuring many but always Stanley Clarke. Featuring Al Di Meola, Lenny White on drums, many others. 

A brilliant Live of Return to Forever !

He played with Miles Davis on Bitches Brew. Author of many jazz standards he won 23 Grammy's and was nominated over 60 times. Chick Corea is considered one of the most importnat piano players of the XXth century.  Thank you for your music et all....
