NEW YORK – The Latest on the Grammy Awards (all times local): 4:35 p.m. The late jazz pianist Chick Corea won two Grammys Sunday only about a month after his death.
Corea won the trophy for best improvised jazz solo and moments later won for best jazz instrumental album, which he shared with Christian McBride & Brian Blade.
The wins for “All Blues” and “Trilogy 2” means Corea has a staggering 25 Grammys. His widow, Gayle Moran, accepted both awards virtually. “His mission in life was to keep the music fires burning bright,” she said through tears.
