Pianist and composer Chick Corea has been leading bands since the late 1960s and, reflecting Corea’s own very eclectic musical journey, those groups have covered an impressively diverse range of musical bases. Norman Meehan plays us music from the Elektric Band, the Akoustic Band, Return to Forever and his latest group The Vigil.
