A key man in the genre of Jazz Fusion, there are few musicians who have garnered more critical acclaim than Chick Corea. With multiple Grammies and numerous albums that garnered respect, there was seemingly no Jazz legend that Corea didn’t play with, learn from or inspire. Corea was by no means the ground zero of Jazz, but he could be the Kevin Bacon as there is no Jazz man or Jazz style that he isn’t six degrees of separation from.
