John Watson

The great jazz pianist, Armando Anthony "Chick" Correa, has passed on at 79. For those who may not understand the magnitude of this loss, this man is one of the cornerstone figures in modern music. Coming out of the late 60s "School Of Miles Davis," he would help guide the future of music for the next 50 years. His band, Return To Forever, was one of the most influential bands in music. Everyone from Prince to Phil Collins, from Thundercat to Robert Glasper, utilized the inspiration from him and his band to fuel their dreams.

Join WCLK's Jamal Ahmad this Friday, February 5 from 6 p.m. 9 p.m. for the High Museum of Art's High Frequency Friday.
