Progrography

Chick Corea
I'll leave the discussion of Chick Corea the jazz pianist to another, wiser scribe. I was exposed to Chick through his work with the jazz/fusion outfit Return To Forever. Since then, I've snatched up various Corea albums, which run the gamut from avant-garde jazz/classical hybrids to traditional jazz. His roots hark back to that great gnarled tree in the forest, Miles Davis, though Chick has long since spawned his own musical seedlings. I've included his albums with RTF and Circle in the discography below, since for me Corea is the gateway into these recordings.
