Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Vibist Gary Burton has been collaborating with pianist Chick Corea and guitarist Pat Metheny since the mid-'70s, and it shows. The three have a strong intuitive sense of each other's lines and sound and can enhance the music in myriad, subtle ways. Having a great rhythm section doesn't hurt either, and bassist Dave Holland and drummer Roy Haynes are two of the very best. On Like Minds they have created an excellent CD: a no-frills, straight-ahead jazz album, crisply recorded, full of energy and imagination. With the exception of the George Gershwin piece, "Soon," the disc features all original compositions, with considerable thought given to distinguishing each soloist despite the surface similarity of their nimble, bouncy styles. Like minds, perhaps, but each possesses a singular voice and the ability to merge it creatively with others. --Wally Shoup

Format: Audio CD
Though Gary Burton, arguably the world's preeminent vibes jazz player, is the name at the top of the marquis on this new release from the venerable Concord Jazz label, much of the initial excitement here is the result of the first meeting on record of guitarist Pat Metheny and pianist Chick Corea. Considering the lofty status of both players, it's hard to believe they haven't paired before. The rhythm section is rounded out by the venerable team of Roy Haynes and Dave Holland on drums and bass. All five of the players are kindred spirits, having played together frequently through the years, save for the Metheny-Corea combination. The mind meld between Burton and Corea is as tight as can be imagined, with these two players having a long history together. On "Like Minds" it is Corea and Metheny's compositional talents that take center stage. Each offer well known chestnuts from their repertoire - in Corea's case, it is the lilting jazz waltz, "Windows" (perhaps my favorite track), while Metheny's classic "Question and Answer" is given a fresh treatment. Burton's "Country Roads" is offered as well and all three composers contribute new pieces for the project. The album notes reveal that most of the recordings are either first or second takes. The technical level of the performances, as one would expect, is mind-blowing. There is an emphasis on stretching out and just "blowing" on the album as opposed to intricate arrangements. The three lead instruments cover some of the melody lines in unison, but Metheny generally foregoes comping on the album, letting Corea's active left hand provide most of the harmonic structure.Read more ›

Not having heard the (apparently) inferior sound of the original recording, I'm struggling to imagine its problems. You see, the sound on this SACD hybrid is nothing short of ravishing, save, perhaps, for a slight thinness that occasionally crops up in relation to Corea's piano which, oddly, seems to lack the brilliance and sonority of the very best instruments. The sound image, apart from that small annoyance, is simply stunning for the rest of the instruments, especially Roy Haynes's drums, which snap, snarl, and bubble with consummate authority. Complaints about Metheny being underrecorded on the original disc, or there being a general lack of clarity, simply do not appertain.
As far as the the performances, this disc finds the players completely engaged and in finest conversational fettle. Whatever is called for--fleetness, emotion, group interaction--each member delivers, seemingly offhandedly, gracing the proceedings with a aura of musical authority that cannot be gainsaid. Indeed, the sheer fluidity, the ease of execution, belies jazz enacted at the very highest level of expression.
This transcendent disc has scarcely left my player since I recently acquired it. I'm convinced it represents a high point in the careers of all the players. Highest recommendation.

A great album with a tremendous amount to offer the listener. Recently received the Grammy for Jazz Instrumental Individual/Group, and it certainly deserved it. Burton, Metheny, and Corea play off each other marvelously, weaving a hypnotic tapestry of music against a solid rhythm section which will delight the listener every time he or she plays this disc. These cats sound great, and the disc is solid from start to finish, no need for the "next track" button here. Add to shopping cart.

The history of bringing together superstars is mixed, sometimes people don't mesh the way you'd hope. In this case, you could've guessed Gary Burton, Chick Corea, and Pat Metheny would be simpatico. The result is as you'd expect, harmonious jazz songs. The ideal jazz for me has some blues, or dissonance, or funk, or some impolite parts. Sometimes my wife likes to call it "neurotic". My wife likes this CD, it isn't "neurotic". I like it too, it's good, but not the stuff I'd listen to 100% of the time. "Like Minds" is my favorite song. So far I haven't talked about Dave Holland -- his playing is very diverse, and he's great on this CD. This is the only modern Roy Haynes drumming I have, he's still as good as when he played on Coltrane's "Impressions".

This is one of the best straight ahead jazz albums I have ever listened to. For all of my friends who have complained about the listen-ability of straight ahead jazz, I would suggest this album. It is good from start to finish, and I have never appreciated a drummer the way I have in listening to Roy Haynes.

The only odd thing may be that Corea's piano sounds a little electric or off at times. This could be from the mix it could be form the piano tuner or manufacturer. Chick plays it very well as usual though. As a pianist of 35 years, I think its the piano more than anything, the voicing of the piano 2nd, and the mix 3rd.
This album is about two things: a light vibrant and brilliant instrumentation (opposite of heavy sounding) and musical interplay. If you listen carefully to the cymbals, the vibe, the guitar youll get the idea. Holland holds up the low end beautifully with resonant tone and musical involvement. Corea serves as the catalyst for much of interaction. There is a lot of point and counterpoint in terms of free ideas interwoven within the melody. This album is far from a jamm session.
If you are into the thought that goes behind the playing, then you'll really enjoy this album. If you listen to it like Jazz Improv 101 at the community college (we play the head then we all take a few choruses) then youll hate it.
Cognition, Timbre and Interplay all set a beautiful mood for the album's entirety.
