LEGENDARY PIANIST CHICK COREA EXPLORES THE LINEAGE OF

GREAT COMPOSERS FROM MOZART TO MONK, JOBIM TO STEVIE WONDER –
TO CHICK COREA – ON SPIRITED NEW 2-CD/3-LP SOLO ALBUM

 On Plays, Corea engages audiences with surprising pairings of his favorite
influences  as well as spontaneous improvisations and his own sterling
compositions on an intimate, captivating live collection


 “Solo piano is lonely,” says Chick Corea, though the legendary pianist is in good company throughout the solo performances captured on this captivating new double album.

On Plays, available now via Concord Jazz, Corea engages with several of his favorite composers, representing a wide swath of musical history – as well as with enthusiastic audiences in concert halls across Europe and the U.S., who become integral collaborators in these spirited renditions.

While Corea’s solo explorations are as exploratory and inventive as ever, the tone on Plays is decidedly communal. That comes from the jazz great’s warm and witty dialogues with his audience, but also from the way he makes connections with the iconic composers whose work he celebrates. He also places these composers in conversation with one another, pairing favorite pieces in such a way that surprising commonalities are revealed that bridge styles, genres and eras from Mozart to the moment at hand.

I streamed some of this earlier, was going to buy a copy, but maxed out my funds this month.  It's very, very good.
