List Rules This list includes solo/bandleader studio albums only; Return to Forever and other collaborations are for another list

List of the best Chick Corea albums, including pictures of the album covers when available. This Chick Corea discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Chick Corea albums can be found at the top of the list. Given the size of the catalog from this incredibly prolific jazz pianist and keyboard wizard, we've restricted this list to just studio albums under his name (though the first Return to Forever album technically counts since it came out under Corea's name). Admittedly it's hard to compare solo piano records to full ensemble records to fusion records, but hey that is the fun of ranking things, right? If you think the greatest Chick Corea album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Chick Corea album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

If you want to know, "What is the Best Chick Corea album of all time?" or "What are the top Chick Corea albums?" then this list will answer your questions.
