Technically, the first time I ever heard Chick Corea on record was as a teenager when I bought Miles Davis' Bitches Brew, pretentiously thinking I was so much more sophisticated than my rock loving peers. But I didn't actually know which musicians I was listening to, apart from Miles himself, and I couldn't make sense..
Scandinavian rock bands have come to the fore over the last decade or so but it wasn’t always like that. Much of the music created in the 1970s in that part of the world remains a mystery to most of us. Take Norway - can you name one band from Norway in that decade? Congratulations..
