    RIP to a genuine leviathan of the keyboard. Even if he'd vanished before he formed Elektric Band, Chick's rep would be intact.

    I only just heard.
    Was perusing YouTube and saw Rick Beato talking about Chick's passing.
    Very sad to hear it.
    I was a big fan especially the RTF material.
    Luckily I got to attend two RTF gigs one of which was the reunion tour show in Toronto

    One of the greatest jazz musicians/composers of all time. He's a Miles, Trane, or Mingus for me....the next generation. Friends (on vinyl) going on tonight and a drink. RIP Armando Anthony "Chick" Corea.

    I just switched off the news because it was the just same old story of the last year. I opened my iPad to see this tragedy. Why wasn’t this the lead story across the networks?

    A true giant of music and a shocking loss, RIP, but we have so much treasured music to honour his memory.

    A Giant indeed. RIP sir , and thank you.

    Chick and Herbie played a tour a while back that hit Massey Hall and I skipped it. For no good reason. I literally sat at home that night and did nothing. I am kicking myself now for such stupidity. I already regretted it shortly after, but so much more so now.

    So, so many hours spent listening to his music over the past nearly fifty years of my life. His legacy is secure.

    A terrible loss. Aside from his groundbreaking work with Return to Forever, he was hands down my favorite Jazz pianist aside from Bill Evans.
    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.

    Completely stunned. He was as huge as Keith Emerson to me when I first started getting into crazy keyboard playing as a little kid. Impossible to overstate Chick’s influence. Man this one is rough.

    Great, great player.

    It is kinda funny to say that someone had an exquisite touch on something as plastic as a Fender Rhodes, but Chick REALLY did.

    Rest In Peace

    I am destroyed.

    Chick has been on of the guiding lights of music for me for ....3 decades at least.

    Ah, shit.

    Rest well, Armando.

    You earned it and then some.

    "Genius" gets tossed around a bit too easily these days.

    But there is no question Chic was a genius.

    A true giant!

    I took guitar lessons in high school from a teacher who was deeply into the whole Chick Corea/Al Di Meola/Return To Forever thing. Of course it took me years for me to reach a point where I enjoyed listening to that stuff. I did develop an appreciation and eventually saw the Return To Forever reunion tour in 2008. That show blew me away.

    RIP Chick! What a surprise. Those are some eloquent last words from him. My condolences to everyone here who was such a big fan. I'm only really familiar with a little of his work, but I'll listen to what I have now.

    Happily in recent years got to see both modern iterations of RTF, Burton/Corea and the Vigil band. RIP.
