Chick Corea, a molten piano

Spread the love

At the end of the 1960s, Chick Corea follows Miles Davis on the stage where he is about to accompany him. There is a grand piano waiting for him in the back. But Miles points to an electric keyboard, a little gray thing that you put away in a suitcase, a metal blade tool from the Fender Rhodes brand, and he growls at Chick: “Play that!” Chick Corea is devastated, he would like to have the strength to say no, he would like to give this toy a blow. But we do not refuse an order that Miles intends.
