He's a master musician, of course he's musical. He's expressing very musical ideas, but he obviously can't really play.

That was very cool - thanks for posting . I really like Brian’s ride cymbal - is that his old A 24” ?

Chick's YouTube channel is hilarious. Love him standing outside the London House in Chicago asking passerby's "Do you remember this place?" Brian's kit always sounds wonderful. I think the right ride is the Spizz? It's all in the Bolero's.

Not sure that looks like a 24 to me, "the" 24" Old A is long since dead I think. Does anyone know what these cymbals are? Assuming one is a Spizz?

He does have a nice touch and is playing very melodically, just lacks the muscle memory to excecute what he is thinking.

With that voice, I’m assuming it’s Christian McBride. Such a cool thing to see.
Thnx

Great vid. When I saw BB a few years ago at Monterey jazz, I believe it was a 22 old K, 22 spizz and 22 K con light, L to R. Interesting patterns by Chick....

Nice Monk-ing around by CMB on the piano too....

... witch Chick noodling around on it. Kinda thought he would have more chops than that considering he has become a Sabian endorser. That hat chick sound is something else.

Best post of the month! I thoroughly enjoyed that! I hardly recognized Chick Corea. He's lost a lot of weight. And, Brian Blade's cymbals sound amazing whoever is playing them.

Love Brian Blade, one of my top 5 drummers. His tuning sounds great too and Chick shows talent behind the drum set.
