After Chick Corea’s passing this year, we truly experienced just how deep of an impact he had.

His compositions and performances throughout his career were brilliant and pushed the limits of what we thought was possible in the jazz world.

After his original version of “Tones for Joan’s Bones” in 1968, he recorded it again several times including in 1996 with Christian McBride’s Trio on the Album “Number Two Express.”

Check out this opening lick for what will go on to be a completely slaying solo by Chick!

Happy Practicing!
