Chick Corea loved being a music maker! Nominated over 60 times for a Grammy, Chick was among the most high profile musicians we have been blessed to interview for the NAMM Oral History program, and yet he was also one of the most down to earth men we have ever met. Around the time of his two NAMM interviews (2016 and 2018), Chick created tools on the internet that he hoped would inspire musicians and bring out the very passion that kept him excited about making music his entire life. The results of his efforts are available in a series of podcasts and master classes on his website. Within these two interviews he discussed the website, along with his relationships with many people and companies within the music products industry as well as the notable musicians he worked with during his career.
