American jazz pianist, keyboard player and composer.
Corea is regarded as one of the most important jazz musicians and composers of his generation and many of his compositions are considered jazz standards. He is arguably the greatest jazz composer of the last 50 years, along with Wayne Shorter. Corea participated in the birth of the electric jazz fusion movement as a member of Miles Davis' band in the 1960s, and in the 1970s formed Return to Forever.Recent years have also seen his rising interest in contemporary classical music. He composed his first piano concerto — and an adaptation of his signature piece, Spain for a full symphony orchestra — and performed it in 1999 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Five years later he composed his first work not to feature any keyboards: His String Quartet No. 1, specifically written for and performed by the highly acclaimed Orion String Quartet during 2004's Summerfest in Milwaukee.
