Chick Corea 22m · 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. 8.6K8.6K 1.4K Comments 7.6K Shares Like Comment Share

A tremendous loss to his family and the musical world. My condolences to Chick’s family. He was an inspiration to me as a musician and a composer. I am fortunate that I had an opportunity to see him love with my Uncle, who introduced me to jazz and fusion as a kid, who passed some years ago.
My all time favorite pianist and composer. I listened to him in the early 1970s until today. He was an innovative and creative improviser and composer, always keeping pace with the times.
I always looked for his latest recording to see what he had recently produced.
My condolences to his family.
