RIP Maestro for CC

Last week we learned of the passing on of jazz master and beloved musician Chick Corea. He had a profound impact on my life, and his music was a gateway to my love of jazz music. This podcast pays homage to Armando (Chick) Corea. I don't think there is another musician who expressed so much love for music as an art form.

Goodbye 45

This music in this podcast has nothing to do with our 45th president. It is just a celebration of his leaving of office, and a hope we can someday return to "normalcy".
