Chick Corea is one of the greatest and best-known modern jazz pianists and composers. His compositions range from obvious Andalusian influences to dissonant post-bop harmonies. His performances range from acoustic to electric instruments, and from bebop to fusion. He has played as a leader on many recordings since 1966 and is still active, recording and touring around the world. His Grammy awards include Best Jazz Performance by a Group, Best Instrumental Arrangement, and Best Improvised Jazz Solo.
