I read the first review of this album while listening to poor quality previews on good headphones. It sounded fine, contrary to the opinion of the piano tech. I decided to ignore the review and buy the cd. I was not disappointed. First from a purely "sound quality" point of view this cd compares very favourably to a steinway played by Benny Green and recorded by Rudy von Gelder. The Yamaha is a tad brighter, but not objectionably so. Then there's the performance. It is almost too good. Chick casts an incredible spell that you just don't want to end. Please don't be discouraged by the tech babble review: this is a sterling performance by any standard.

As a long-time recording engineer and jazz producer, I must also rebut the first review of this recording. At one time fairly early in my career, I realized that I no longer enjoyed some of my previously favorite music because of poor recording quality. That was the wake-up call to end all wake-up calls. To lose my ability to enjoy music because I loved it so much that I chose it as my work seemed particularly cruel. Fortunately, I was able to overcome that problem just by having the realization, because I had no intention of giving up either my career or any of my favorite music. I sincerely hope the author of the original tech review is able to overcome his apparent "enjoyment disability" as well.

Whatever piano sound one may prefer, this is the piano the artist chose. Listen to the samples and hear for yourself. The recording is clear, and open and luminous. Yes, the piano is a bit bright, but again, not objectionably so. It's Chick at his best, it sounds great, 'nuff said.

First of all, I'm not an audiophile who has first rate equipment, so I cannot comment on the quality of recording...
I like the music.
Personally, I would prefer a bit more swinging affair, but this album is not of the swinging sort (after all, Corea was regarded as one of the best and most influential fusion keyboardists...).

This is an extremely interesting and contemplative, personal revision of jazz history, containing Corea's originals, jazz classics (f. i. Monk's "Pannonica") and pop-jazz evergreens (including "Stella by Starlight" and Chaplin's "Smile")...

This is not an solo piano album for those who seek for variety, however - the range of Corea's influences and inspirations is huge, but this is Chick Corea's personal album with, perhaps, only Corea's "Blues for Art" and "Smile" giving the touch of the retro-schtick some of us jazz fans like so much...

All in all, a well-rounded and interesting modern jazz album.

(@ Jive Rhapsodist): Chick Corea's music is no different than any other kind of music, in the sense that you either like it or you don't. Obviously, you don't "get" or like Chick's thing - and that's OK. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and god forbid everyone had the same tastes - it would make for an extremely boring world.

That being said, I don't think it makes any sense to analyze why you don't like it. You speak of a "simple form of quartal harmony" in reference to "I Want to Be Happy;" first of all, I don't think there's anything simplistic about Chick's arrangement/interpretation of that tune, and if all you get from that arrangement is that he's using a lot of 4th's, you're missing a lot, because there is so much more going on there. I consider that tune an extreme example of Chick "taking it out" as far as the harmonies; there's some really dissonant stuff in there that has no relation to perfect 4th's.

Anyway, back to my main point: you see everything wrong with this record, because you just don't like Chick's "thing." But, speaking as a dedicated Chickophile, this record is a serious treat for those of us who do. It's like a distillation of everything that his style represents, like it or not (and I don't like absolutely all of what he has done, but I do like the vast majority of it). Yes, the piano sounds bright, but that's another aspect of Chick's "thing." I personally like a darker piano sound, but telling Chick to use a dark sound would be like telling, I don't know, Picasso to paint more like Jackson Pollock (lame example, I know).

Chick Corea at his virtuosic best, phenomenal improvisation, the recording captures a truly captivating performance at every second. I was truly impressed by this release as it shows a different side of Chick's inner creativity, weaving his way through these standards effortlessly.
