He produced an absolutely incredible body of work. Return to Forever brought many of us rockers into the world of jazz, and opened our ears and minds to things we never would have otherwise learned.

You are a great. And joining Brubeck, the Duke, and all the greats at the great piano in the other world. And as far as Cab goes, he too was OG.

Huge talent. Genius improviser and sublime composer. I hope he, Keith Emerson and Thelonious Monk are having a massive jam session right now...

PS: Nice pull on the Banner article, Adam.

The best Chick Corea groups are his Elektric Band (with Frank Gambale on guitar, John Patitucci on bass, Dave Weckl on drums and Eric Marienthal on sax) and Return to Forever (with Al DiMeola on guitar, Lenny White on drums, Stanley Clarke on bass). They really cooked on those albums...
