... he didn't die, he just Returned to Forever.

Haven't cried for the passing of a genius since ... Stanley Kubrick?

Saw him live with the original RTF in Paris (Clarke, White) and for the Remembering Bud Powell tour.
Also live in Montreal for the Five Peace Band Live tour, blending RTF and the Mahavishnu Orchestra.

A music legend


It is with great sadness we announce that on February 9th, Chick Corea
passed away at the age of 79, from a rare form of cancer which was only
discovered very recently.

Throughout his life and career, Chick relished in the freedom and the
fun to be had in creating something new, and in playing the games that
artists do.

He was a beloved husband, father and grandfather, and a great mentor and
friend to so many. Through his body of work and the decades he spent
touring the world, he touched and inspired the lives of millions.

Though he would be the first to say that his music said more than words
ever could, he nevertheless had this message for all those he knew and
loved, and for all those who loved him:

“I want to thank all of those along my journey who have helped keep the
music fires burning bright. 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.

“And to my amazing musician friends who have been like family to me as
long as I’ve known you: It has been a blessing and an honor learning
from and playing with all of you. My mission has always been to bring
the joy of creating anywhere I could, and to have done so with all the
artists that I admire so dearly—this has been the richness of my life.”

Chick’s family will of course appreciate their privacy during this
difficult time of loss.

Our world is leaving brilliant people, people whose work has become a separate era in the development of our culture. It is a pity that this era is over. But on the other hand, death is inevitable.
