I would only hope that Chick continues ‘WCHICK’ radio beyond the promoting of Vigil & the webinar. I’d love to hear more conversations perhaps with Chick and Stanley… Chick & Gary Burton, Perhaps even Chick & Herbie Hancock… Chick's music is historic, and this type of documentation of what he does, and how & why he does it is priceless! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting & chatting with Chick a few times.. And this is the real deal! Up close, and personal! 5 Stars!! ~ Jamaicafunk
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 !
It was fascinating to hear about the studio recording of The Vigil album. Looking forward to the next podcast!
