"I love you and I miss you Father"
Cheryl Davis

Keyboardist Chick Corea's father was a jazz trumpeter who got his son started in music. It was another jazz trumpeter, Miles Davis, who launched Corea on the road to success in music.

"Miles was a great leader in the second half of the 20th century. ...When he had an idea to hear his music a certain way, he didn't ask for licenses. He didn't call the government or ask his musicians or a critic," Corea said. "He went ahead and pursued his idea."
