Armando Anthony Corea would have been 81 this week on June 12.

His legacy is enormous and he is a towering figure in the music.

Many of his compositions are Jazz standards such as Spain, La Fiesta, Windows, and 500 Miles High. His influence on pianists is massive and he’s one of the more important developers of the use of synthesizers in Jazz.

We celebrate Chick Corea on the Nightside with Andy O’ this Sunday, June 12 from 8 pm to midnight on The Oasis in the City KUVO.
