This show was 1st in the global jazz chart.
We give thanks to a leading light in music, having learned yesterday of Chick Corea’s passing. He is revered for some of the greatest jazz compositions of modern times, but possessed an inventiveness that saw him advance styles from classical to bossa to rock and more. Chick’s artistic capacity, across six decades, knew no bounds and expanded the horizons of the artists and fans who loved him. Gilles Peterson celebrates the life of Chick Corea from 8am GMT on Saturday morning.
