While she was not a musician, that I am aware of, Connie Constance Goodner, sister-in-law of Leon Russell died, Thursday of Covid-19. May she rest in peace. She was a lovely woman and sister to Leon's 1st true love, Janet Lee Constantine. They had 1 daughter, Baby Blueagle Bridges aka Blue Bridges-Fox. Connie was Blue's aunt.

The only Chick Corea track I have in my collection is through my love of Steve Vai.

It's a track from West Side Story called The Rumble. For the recording, Vai's band set up at one end of the room and Corea's at the other and the track was recorded live.
