Melanie’s ‘Jazz on the Bay’ featuring the legendary Chick Corea will be broadcast on KCSM Jazz 91 this Friday (February 26th) at 9am (Pacific Time) | 5pm (GMT).

Chick Corea is one of the most prolific jazz artists of our times. From avant-garde to bebop, children’s songs to straight ahead, hard-hitting fusion to heady forays into classical, Chick has touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his illustrious career while maintaining a standard of excellence.

A restlessly creative spirit, he continued to explore and generate new material and in this programme, revealed his inspirations and life journey while backstage at the Zellerbach Hall on the campus of UC Berkeley, California.

Originally broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1, the programme was created and hosted by Melanie and produced by Aidan Butler.
