A pianist since the age of four Chick Corea would later be influenced by bebop players such as Bud Powell and Horace Silver.
At the start of his career in the early 1960s he gained valuable experience playing with artists including Mongo Santamaria, Blue Mitchell, Herbie Mann, and Stan Getz
before making his record debut as leader with "Tones for Joan's Bones" in 1966.
Persuaded while working with Miles Davis in the late '60s to begin playing electric piano Chick would appear on the trumpeter's landmark albums "In a Silent Way", "Bitches Brew", and "Miles Davis at the Fillmore."
After leaving Davis he would go though an acoustic avant-guard period with the formation of his band "Circle" before establishing himself as a leading artist in jazz-fusion with his "Return to Forever" band.
