Biography

Born Armando Anthony Corea in Chelsea, Massachusetts on June 12, 1941, he began studying piano at age four. Early on in his development, Horace Silver and Bud Powell were important influences while the music of Beethoven and Mozart inspired his compositional instincts. Chick’s first major professional gig was with Cab Calloway, which came before early stints in Latin bands led by Mongo ... Read more in Amazon's Chick Corea Store

Editorial Reviews

Pianist Chick Corea and vibraphonist Gary Burton became a collaborative team almost by accident. Their first musical encounter took place at a jazz festival in Germany in 1972, when they performed together in a spur-of-the-moment encore. The results were so satisfying not only to the audience but to the artists themselves that the two musicians reconvened in a recording studio a couple months later to record the intricate yet highly melodic Crystal Silence, their first of several collaborative studio projects.

The impromptu encounter in Germany marked the beginning of a musical partnership that has lasted for four decades not only on the performance stage but also over the course of seven recordings. Despite the years that have come and gone since that fateful European gig, the duo of Corea and Burton have not lost their ability to generate their unique brand of what could best be described as cool heat. This highly creative and prolific team celebrates forty years of great jazz with the release of Hot House.

Though we often go for months at a time between duet tours while we are playing music on our own, Burton says, within about ten minutes of getting together again, the old communication snaps back into place. I can guess what Chick is going to play next from two blocks away, and he is the same with me. Certainly, the principal reason we have continued to work together all this time is because we have this natural reaction.

That natural reaction is alive and well on Hot House, a collection of ten songs that draws from the work of some of their favorite composers from the 1940s through the 1960s. After exploring several genres of jazz and standards, we eventually settled on eight composers, most from the jazz world, says Burton. But we chose songs that are generally not that well known; the composers names are probably more familiar than the songs to most listeners. The final result feels very fresh and different to us.

Although the source material is indeed eclectic, the set as a whole is seamless and undeniably rich. It starts with the lighthearted Can t We Be Friends, what Burton calls a rather obscure standard first recorded by Art Tatum, a piano hero to both Burton and Corea. The track intentionally maintains some of Tatum s flourishes and stride swing feel. The duo then makes the unlikely shift from Tatum to Paul McCartney s decidedly darker Eleanor Rigby, a cover that adds a sense of uptempo urgency to the original song s poignancy.

After four decades of collaboration, the Corea-Burton team continues to look forward to the next big idea. Throughout our 40 years of making music together, there has never been a downside with our duet, says Corea. Each concert and recording we have done has always been a great pleasure and a personal inspiration. This new set of duet music is no exception. Until this recording, we never focused on standards with our duet, but it was natural to do as these songs are from the era we grew up in.

Burton adds: I used to think that someday we would run out of ideas and get bored with our duet. When we crossed the 20-year mark, I wondered if we might come to the end sometime soon. But at the 30-year mark, I began to think it might last, after all. And now after four decades, we are as excited as ever about the music we re playing and how much fun we have on stage every night.

I saw the Chick Corea - Gary Burton set at the 2012 Detroit Jazz Festival; these two guys set the amphitheater on fire--it was a big crowd and everyone loved the set! This was how I found out about Hot House; it wasn't even out yet, but when I got home that night I looked it up and pre-ordered it. If you love jazz piano and vibes, you'll love hearing them together; this is an incredible duo and I love hearing just the two of them--no drums or bass, just piano and vibes. The "Eleanor Rigby" piece is a fantastic example, and the only negative I could say is it is not as long as the live version I heard at the Festival, though it will always remind me of that night. The Harlem String Quartet is a good choice for accompanying musicians and the strings blend well with piano and vibes.

This CD is definitely worth the five star rating!

I find this album to be 2 master musicians, who consistently challenge themselves, stay real and provide thrilling music for the listeners. These 2 men play like one person with 4 hands or maybe 8 hands. They have chosen great songs and interpret them with great imagination using improvisatory and compositional skills in that special level of rarity, seldom heard. They are at the top of their game, providing us with a glimpse into the full mindset of the professional musician. Well chosen songs, phenomenal arrangements, supreme improvisation, consummate interplay and the required big ears. Nothing here I've heard before. I thank these men for their lifelong pursuit of artistic excellence.

Hot House is a Wonderful, creative and virtuostic playing. Chick Corea is a genius pianist as well as Gary Burton's vibes performance. The addition of the string quartet was brilliant.

I remember when the first Burton/Corea partnership, "Crystal Silence", was released in 1972. Entranced, I would listen by the hour until I'd worn out several vinyl copies (thank god for CDs). Forty plus years after there is still much to delight the listener as "Hot House" offers up a mix of originals with the familiar (Eleanor Rigby, the title track penned by Tadd Dameron). The arrangements are adventurous, the musicians stay out of each other's way as necessary, and the venture carries the "sound of surprise" indigenous to all good jazz.

Wow! Once again a masterpiece recording from Corea and Burton. When they get together, they are like two sides of the same coin.

Please make no mistake. I love the music on this album. The collaboration between Gary Burton and Chick Corea continues to produce brilliant and innovative variations on some most favorite themes, including old standards, Thelonious Monk, and his own wonderful compositions.
But the engineering sucks! The vibes were recorded much too loud. On my spectrum analyzer the frequency lines representing that instrumental part were living constantly above the ceiling of the display, resulting in harsh and distorted sound and attacks that hurt the ears, all juxtaposed over a piano that was in all respects just fine. This was true for all tracks except the last, which seems, in terms of both instrumentation and sonic quality, to be recorded under different circumstances. Why Corea allowed this to pass is anybody's guess. Perhaps time constraints, logistics, expense, etc.. In the end, it's just a shame. By the way, I'm pretty sure it's not my system....new Harman Kardon 120 wpc stereo receiver, year old Klipsch loudspeakers, and it's the only vibes CD I have that has this problem. It's a download, BTW. Maybe the problem is there, but I doubt it.
Is this CD worth having? You bet it is! But for audiophiles like myself and/or musicians with very sensitive hearing, BE FOREWARNED.... this is something you're just going to have to learn to live with.

This is a display of two masters doing what they do best. My favorite track would have to be "Time Remembered", and I would have been perfectly content if the entire CD was just one very long version of that song, being that my own personal taste tends to run more towards the melodic, dreamy, and beautiful, rather than the hyper upbeat... but that said, it is all good.
