Chick Corea loved Gran Via!
I got the opportunity to go backstage at Boston Symphony Hall and hang out with Chick before his concert recently. Then he invited me to his private green room with a piano. We were alone, so I asked him if I could play him my composition called Gran Via, a flamenco jazz fusion tune, based on my time in Valencia, Spain. He liked it so much, he asked me to play the chorus again! He said he “really connected with it.” This made it all worthwhile for me! High praise from a master.
