Oh wow... had not heard that. I’ve grown up with Chick... especially the days with Dave Weckl... sad.

Just recently, before we got this sad news, I was trying to find a new copy of my double LP, "My Spanish Heart". I hope it’s available. Presently I’m listening to the old one, and it’s in better shape than I thought it was, but I still want a new one.
As much as I like what came before and after "My Spanish Heart", this double LP will always have my heart. Right now I’m trying to pick out a favorite cut, but I think that will be impossible, I like them all so much.
Chick looked so young for so long, that the thought of him possibly passing never entered my mind. I purchased this LP in 78, which was not long after it was released, and made cassettes which I played on my road trip from St. Louis to Atlanta.
Everyone who rode with me after reaching Atlanta was highly impressed by this album, I think it’s his best, but he produced so many fantastic works.
May he RIP.
