His music will enter the hearts and minds of those yet to be born.

Thank you for the autographed photo you sent to me in 1979. I will always love you. You just can’t be replaced. X.

Chick was one of the greatest and most influential jazz musicians of all time. He brought forth excitement, adventure and profound passion in his compositions, his performances and in his generous mentoring of three generations of jazz musicians. His influence on my own life and music is immeasurable and his presence even now a constant inspiration. Thank you, Chick. Your music lives on – and so do you – in all of us. Thank you.

My inspiration since the early 70's. Turned me upside down upon hearing "Light as a Feather". Thank you for the beauty you cast into the world.

Chick is my mentor! I am constantly amazed by his time and creativity. I'll continue to progress on my musical-life journey, always with Chick in my heart.

Irreplaceable. I loved "Trio Music Live In Europe" above all other piano trio albums. Thanks for being great.

El mundo perdió a un pionero en el Jazz. Pero servirá de mucha inspiración a las nuevas generaciones siempre. Hasta pronto Master.

I was attending Saint Louis U, went I had the privilege to see what I considered the best Jazz concert I´ve ever been to
