Chick Corea: who was the Spain composer and Return to Forever founder - and what was he known for? | The Scotsman

Chick Corea, one of Americas great Jazz pianist died recently and I only found out about it by reading the Scotsman newspaper. I heard him play three times live and have several of his cd's. He was genuinely great and I expect many jazz fans will agree with my statement.

Sorry to hear that. I saw Chick and his band Return to Forever play at the Paramount Theatre in Denver back in 2008. Corea was a great jazz pianist, one of the best ever.

May he rest in peace.

I was never a huge Chick Corea guy, but it's always sad when the big names of Jazz die. I've been able to see a few of the greats, but there just aren't many of them left.
