Pianist, composer and bandleader Chick Corea (born June 21, 1941) continues the long celebration of his 75th birthday, currently at his frequent New York headquarters the Blue Note. Corea’s career has brought him together with virtually every major figure in modern jazz. We congratulate him and wish him many more years of the creativity, daring and joyous expression that have made his work an inspiration for musicians and a source of deep satisfaction for listeners.
