Chick Corea, Jazz Keyboardist and Innovator, Dies at 79

Quote:
Chick Corea, an architect of the jazz-rock fusion boom in the 1970s who spent more than a half century as one of the foremost pianists in jazz, died on Tuesday. He was 79.

The cause was a rare form of cancer that had only recently been diagnosed, according to an announcement posted Thursday on his website. It did not say where he died.

Mr. Corea’s most famous band was Return to Forever, a collective with a rotating membership that nudged the genre of fusion into greater contact with Brazilian, Spanish and other global influences. It also provided Mr. Corea with a palette on which to experiment with a growing arsenal of new technologies.

But throughout his career, he never abandoned his first love, the acoustic piano, on which his punctilious touch and crisp sense of harmony made his playing immediately distinctive.

That's a bummer. Love the fusion period and its distinct sound.

A truly influential artist for sure.

RIP

He was a big part of Miles Davis's revolutionary 'electric period'. A real pioneer for sure. RIP Chick Corea

Yep, and later some fine work with Herbie Hancock and Jean-Luc Ponty.
