Album
Name of Song: Chick Corea – Composer of Light

Purpose and integrity was his trademark,
Composing endless music and played it well,
He played with many different types of musicians,
Playing music was what he always liked to sell.

He plays and leaves a space for you to join in with,
A telepathic yearning to connect,
A master at connecting to his listeners,
And 27 Grammy’s showed he had respect.

Chorus
He truly spearheaded the rise of jazz/rock fusion,
He loved to move an audience with his songs.
He always pushed the spiritual side of music,
Inviting others to join and ride along.

What an ability to play piano and blend with others,
Seamlessly blending harmonies in and out,
Inspiring others to play beyond their comfort,
Wanting to know what others were all about.

Interested in others and how to help them,
Music was his focus every day,
Constantly creating all his music,
Everybody knew that what his way.

Chorus

______

Listening was the key to all his greatness,
This was his own way of finding out,
You can see this as he plays along with others,
Constant learning what they’re all about.

He played beyond the level of most players,
Practicing and playing every day,
Counterpointing melodies never heard of,
Gary Burton for one could play his ways.

Chorus
He truly spearheaded the rise of jazz/rock fusion,
He loved to move an audience with his songs.

Inviting others to join and ride along.
