Chick Corea – NEA Jazz Master, DownBeat Hall of Fame member and 20-time Grammy winner – remains one of the most versatile, productive and recorded pianist-composers in jazz, nearly 50 years after he recorded his first solo album at age 25 (that was 1966, to be exact). He just won the DownBeat Artist of the Year award in this year’s Readers Poll, and I had the joy of interviewing him about his life and career. It’s in the December issue of DownBeat, or here.
