Chick Forever: WBGO Celebrates Chick Corea

Chick Corea, who died on Feb. 9 at 79, was a boundless creative force, and an inspiration to all of us at WBGO. We never need a reason to celebrate his life and music, but in the wake of his passing, we are springing into action with #ChickForever, a weeklong celebration across the full sweep of our programming at WBGO.
