Chick Corea: A True Jazz Legend

Posted by on

Jazz Festival Manager, Emily Jones, tell us why Chick Corea is a must-see event next April…

“It’s fair to say the term ‘legend’ is overused in jazz. American pianist Chick Corea, however, is the real deal. His first professional gig was with Cab Calloway (of Minnie the Moocher fame) and he went on to become a key member of Miles Davis’ band in the 1960s. During a five-decade career which has touched on many genres, he has won 22 Grammy awards and been nominated for a grand total of 63. Many of his compositions are considered jazz standards – such as Spain – and are played by musicians around the world on a daily basis (as well by as amateurs like myself!). Here is a man who is truly deserving of the moniker, and he’ll be appearing in Montpellier Gardens on 30th April – how could you miss that?”
