Happy B'Day Chick Corea!

Since, we are going to take the night off, we thought, rather than throwing up a goose-egg, as to posting (there are a few, total inane, draining stories bouncing around the World Wide Web, that we just don't want to drag ourselves into this evening) we would give a shout-out, to a local (Chelsea, MA), on his 68th birthday.

Happy B'Day Chick Corea!

Corea, the pianist, keyboard player, and composer, has performed and collaborated with the best-of-the-best, and "is known for his work during the 1970s in the genre of jazz fusion. He participated in the birth of the electric fusion movement as a member of Miles Davis' band in the 1960s, and in the 1970s formed Return to Forever.[1]".

You can visit Chick Corea's website HERE

While he has an incredible body of work, we will go with two of our favorites, from the Return To Forever days...

1975 was some other planet i lived on.

i went with a boyfriend to two, maybe three chick corea show's in connecticut during that year.

the boyfriend died a year later of a very fast-moving cancer and i have not listened to chick corea since.

it's surprising to me how much comfort there is listening to "no mystery." chick corea and RTF remained my friend even after i rejected them.
