The story behind a modern jazz standard AP Images The son of a trumpeter in a Dixieland band, the virtuosic keyboardist Chick Corea is revered as one of the principal alchemists in the fusion of jazz with rock, funk, and Latin music. Throughout his eclectic career, Corea has collaborated with vibraphonist Gary Burton and banjoist Bela Fleck, pioneered the use of the Fender Rhodes electric piano, and won 16 Grammys. We were on the road continually, and we were adding music to our repertoire and preparing our second record. Our rhythm was pretty developed by then-Stanley [Clarke] on bass, Airto [Moreira] playing the trap drums, bringing his Brazilian touch to everything, plus my writing. I still am.

Life and career Youth Corea was born in Chelsea, Massachusetts. Supervised by his father Armando, a jazz trumpet player who had led a Dixieland band in the Boston area in the s and s , Chick began playing the piano at the age of four and drums at eight.
The latter would help spark his interest in musical composition. After several years, he started taking lessons for concert pianist Salvatore Sulo , and moved to New York where after brief visits to Columbia University and The Juilliard School he started his professional career. With this band, he experimented using electric instruments, mainly the Fender Rhodes. In the period 71 , he was active in the band Circle, an avant-jazz group featuring Anthony Braxton , Dave Holland and Barry Altschul.
In , he founded another band, Return to Forever. On its early records, Return to Forever has a bright sound dominated by vocals, Fender Rhodes and flute. Al Di Meola joined the band in , and Corea extended the use of synthesizers , particularly the Moog and Minimoog synthesizers. In , he started his own record label, Stretch Records.
Scientology Corea discovered the work of author and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in , first becoming familiar with Dianetics but in the s also developing an interest in his science fiction novels. He did many, many things; he was a true Renaissance Man. He described his change of motivation: I no longer wanted to satisfy myself. I really want to connect with the world and make my music mean something to people. Down Beat , October 21, , p. Like most of us, I grew up in a mechanical world.
And when I got into music, it was mechanical in the sense of choosing notes and chords. Missing were the humanities. What ever happened to how you really live? How you feel? How you relate to people? How you reach out and help someone? Scientology gives you the necessary tools to be successful at helping someone.
Corea created some of his Return to Forever compositions in collaboration with Neville Potter, a friend whom he had met through Scientology. It sort of nailed the spiritual intent of the music.
Many of his songs contain explicit references to Scientology and various works by Hubbard. Awards Over the years, he has been nominated for 45 Grammy Awards out of which he has won Year.
