My Chick Corea story Mr. Bunny Brunel
HOLLYWOOD (Perfect Music Today) 2/11/21/–In 1978 I was playing for a week at The Ronnie Scott Club in London with the great pianist singer Tania Maria and Andre Ceccarelli on drums.
The world famous keyboard player, Patrick Moraz, was there every nigh. On Saturday he told me that Sunday he was going to see Chick Corea that was playing in town.
He told Chick Corea to come to the club to listen to me. That is how I met Chick that was playing in Paris few weeks later. I made sure to be backstage that night.
He recognize me and ask is tour manager to take my telephone number. That’s how I got a call a month later to fly to Los Angeles to record the Grammy winner album Secret Agent with him.
So I definitely owe my career to Chick Corea.
We were going to play together again with José Pisa last year but it has unfortunately been postponed because of Covid. So it will never happen 🙁
I did tour and recorded with Chick for 6 years. It was the best time of my life.
Thank you Chick for everything. I will always miss you 🙂
Rest In Peace
Chick and Bunny
