Wonderful musician. I still have a magazine with a huge spread on Chic Corea from my first trip to the USA, from 1977. It was a treasure I came back with. If only I could play even a little like him.

I saw him live with Keith Jarrett too. Wow!

I'll miss him a lot.
Philosophers have only interpreted the world - the point, however, is to change it. No it isn't ... maybe we should leave it alone for a while.

In a message left for his fans prior to his death, Corea said: "It is my hope that those who have an inkling to play, write, perform or otherwise, do so. If not for yourself, then for the rest of us.
It's not only that the world needs more artists, it's also just a lot of fun"
he said.

Got a nice copy of 'Crystal Silence' this morning, from EBay, German seller. No delays on that, quite pleased.
