Great interview, look forward to the series!!!
Excellent inside jazz interview. Lose the slick intro.
Extremely interesting interview. Lots of good inside info from some elite jazz player.
My only complaint, and maybe it's part of the podcast culture, is that the intro and outro are annoyingly over-produced. 4 minutes of Russ Davis' slick announcer shtick almost drove me away. And him asking the listener to go to iTunes and give it a 5-start rating... come on... give it a rest. Yep, there's advertising for Chick's online master class. That's fine but dial back the slick a notch or two please.
Up close with Jazz Legend Chick Corea. Chick is the interviewer, but he is also part of the conversation, so you get more than just an interview. Really great for all of us musicians who hold Chick Corea in the highest regard !
