Keyboardist and composer Chick Corea has a storied history of performances at New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club, including multi-week stands marking his 60th and 70th birthdays. But in mid-October through mid-December, Corea celebrated his 75th with an eight-week concert series featuring a strikingly diverse program of past and present collaborators. JT photographer Alan Nahigian was granted access to the sound checks and sets. We are pleased to present this gallery consisting of images from our feature in the Jan./Feb. 2017 issue along with several additional photos.
