I’ve been listening to the jazz fusion sounds of seventy-five year old pianist & electric keyboardist, Chick Corea, for several years, but only recently learned that he is the fourth-most-nominated artist (63 nominations) in the history of the Grammys! I’m not surprised, though, as his diverse musical skills and styles have spanned a career encompassing 88 recorded albums…
