The 23-time Grammy winner Chick Corea died of a rare form of cancer, according to a Facebook post shared by his team. He was part of Miles Davis' band and later formed his own group.
The post said Corea passed away due to a rare form of cancer, which was only recently discovered.
"I want to thank all of those along my journey who have helped keep the music fires burning bright. It is my hope that those who have an inkling to play, write, perform or otherwise, do so. If not for yourself then for the rest of us. It’s not only that the world needs more artists, it’s also just a lot of fun," he said in a message prior to his death, which was shared in the Facebook post.
The 23-time Grammy award winner was best known for his compositions such as "Spain," "500 Miles High," "La Fiesta," "Armando's Rhumba" and "Windows." He was known to push the boundaries of the genre, and worked alongside other jazz legends such as Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock.
