Since embarking on a solo career in 1966, Chick Corea has been at the forefront of jazz, both as a renowned pianist forging new ground with his acoustic jazz bands and as an innovative electric keyboardist with Return to Forever, the Elektric Band and now the electro/acoustic Vigil. His extensive discography boasts numerous albums, beginning with his 1968 classic, Now He Sings, Now He Sobs. A DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, 22-time Grammy winner and keyboard virtuoso, Corea has attained living legend status after five decades of unparalleled creativity and an artistic output that is simply staggering. Corea is the fourth most–nominated artist in the history of the Grammys, with 63 nominations. He’s also earned three Latin Grammy Awards, the most of any artist in the Best Instrumental Album category. From straight ahead to avant-garde, bebop to fusion, children’s songs to chamber music, along with some far-reaching forays into symphonic works, Corea has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his illustrious career, while maintaining a standard of excellence that is awe-inspiring. A tirelessly creative spirit, Corea continues to forge ahead, continually reinventing himself in the process.
