|Didn't get into jazz that much til the mid-70s. One of the people we've seen several times is Chick Corea. Once with The Electric Band, in the mid-80s at Mississippi Nights (small club on St Louis waterfront). Then, at the 2008 Return To Forever Reunion Tour in Indianapolis when we had back stage passes. Most of these with passes were misdirected and were were among a tiny handful of fans that got back there. |
Met Chick briefly, Lenny White (who came across as genuinely modest and very sincere), followed by a fascinating and lengthy conversation with Stanley Clarke who was there with his teenage son. Stanley is the definition of a gentle giant. I'm 6' 1" and he towers over me. Prince of a guy. We talked mostly about history.
