Currently on a world tour as Return To Forever IV, Chick Corea takes some time to talk to Keyboard Magazine about creativity, techniques and gear for their July 2011 issue. His stage rig for this tour, described below, includes a Minimoog Voyager, a Little Phatty and a MF-104Z Analog Delay. Compared to the Minimoog, Chick says "I also very much like the Little Phatty. It really smokes, and it's smaller than the Voyager, but it's got a unique sound as well."
As a celebration of Chick's 70th birthday and his contributions to the world of music and to Keyboard Magazine, here's a look back on his past interviews. On the debut issue of Keyboard from September/October 1975, Chick shares the cover with an article on Bob Moog himself!
