Chick Corea has Grammys sprinkled all over Clearwater. He keeps a few at his recording studio on Fort Harrison Avenue, a few more at his mansion farther inland. And he always has to plan for more coming.

"That's always a yearly question that my wife, Gayle, asks about," said Corea, calling from Kiev, some 5,700 miles from all those golden trophies.

Deciding where to store your Grammy awards — 22 in all, tied for sixth most all time — is not a bad problem to have. It's one of the few that the legendary jazz fusion pianist has in Clearwater, the city he has called home since 1997.
