A Fireside Chat with Chick Corea
AAJ: But even a spaceship captain/pianist finds solace.
CC: I find it most relaxing, to tell you the truth, when I'm working hard because I love what I do. When I can get it going smoothly and I get the concerts going well and all the details are together and the musicians are doing fine and we're making people happy and they're smiling, all of the logistics are pulled together, this is a big challenge and I love it. I love to just continue to do it and do it. I do take my time with my family, with my wife, but this is what I love to do.
AAJ: And the future?
CC: We're in Italy, in the middle of a six week tour. We have some dates in the United States. We're playing the Blue Note in New York. We have some dates in Los Angeles. We're doing a very interesting gig at the largest science fiction fair in the country.
CC: You know Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia.
AAJ: I'm a geek.
CC: Well, we're going to do it this year. We're depicting a science fiction novel and it's a science fiction audience, so the band is going to play Dragon Con.
AAJ: Hope you speak Klingon.
CC: (Laughing) I saw some photos of Dragon*Con and it's pretty wild. It should be fun.
