PORTLAND, ORE. PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ Some 2,000 people gathered in a park for a free concert by jazz pianist Chick Corea as members of the Church of Scientology continued a protest over a jury's verdict against their church.

Corea, speaking at a rally earlier Monday, said he had cut short a concert tour in Japan, the first such cancellation in his 20 years as a musician, so he could "support my group here."

"I, as a musician ... really value the right to speak freely and create freely and this is the issue that is under attack right now," Corea added.
