RE: he's simply saying (and I agree) he's 'a major loss to jazz', not "Chick's the G.O.A.T."

If he is saying his list is the greatest of all time, he left off many candidates. I have insufficient credentials to pick a greatest of all time, and really don't believe anyone does. I won't even go as far as saying that Mr. Corea belongs as a candidate because it is immaterial. That said, he was a remarkable pianist and composer with both popular and artistic appeal over nearly 5 decades. Anyone judging him merely by his fusion legacy is missing so much: early work with Getz and others, his avante garde period with Circle, work with Miles on early fusion efforts, RTF, duets with Burton and others, some great trio works (Corea/Vitous/Haynes & Corea/McBride/Blade - both collaborations were two of the best concerts I ever attended, several decades apart), his classical work, and Latin inspired work. Yes, his passing to the spirit world is a great loss.
