Corea competes against himself at Grammys

NEW YORK – Chick Corea took the unusual step of releasing four major recordings last year covering a wide gamut of music – everything from solo piano improvisations to a concerto for jazz quintet and chamber orchestra.

Now, the 71-year-old jazz pianist and composer is in the unusual position of competing against himself in two categories at the Feb. 10 awards show in Los Angeles.
