Programme 1 - Performer

Norman Meehan looks at Chick Corea’s early work as an accompanist to some of the jazz luminaries of the 1960s including Miles Davis and Stan Getz and suggests how his experiences in these bands contributed to the very wide range of musical styles his subsequent work as a pianist has traversed.
