Chick Corea, In Memoriam

video by CatSynth TV

Legendary composer and keyboardist Chick Corea has passed away. Above is a tribute from supporting member, CatSynth.

"We pay tribute to the great jazz composer and keyboardist Chick Corea, who passed away on February 9, 2021. We look at his seminal work with Miles Davis in the late 1960s into his launching Return to Forever in the 1970s. We also touch on his Elektric and Acoustic bands, his duets with Herbie Hancock, his explorations of orchestral and chamber music, and his reunions in the 2000s.

His pioneering work included embracing the electric piano and then synthesizers in his jazz performances (something he shared with his contemporary Herbie Hancock), but returned to acoustic jazz and explored other aspects of music over the years. He leaves behind a multi-decade legacy.

We extend our thoughts to his family, friends, and many collaborators on his passing."
