Celebrating the legacy and influence of the jazz pianist.
Following the news of Chick Corea’s death, LDLDN has released a new tribute mix exploring the work of the pioneering jazz artist.
Born in 1941, Corea’s extensive career saw him “exploring harmonically adventurous post-bop, electric fusion, Latin traditions, and classical,” as Matt Collar notes.
LDLDN’s two-hour tribute mix places Corea’s own compositions alongside his work with artists including Stanley Clarke and Joe Henderson.
It comes in the wake Corea’s death on the 9th February, aged 79.
Listen to the mix in full above.
