Product Details
Performer Notes
  • This is the companion CD to ORIGINALS: SOLO PIANO PART ONE (9029).
  • Solo performer: Chick Corea (piano).
  • Recorded live between November 15 & 30, 1999. Includes liner notes by Chick Corea.
  • Personnel: Chick Corea (piano).
  • Recording information: 11/15/1999-11/30/1999.
  • This second volume of Chick Corea's 1999 solo piano recordings is devoted to standard songs and jazz classics. Naturally, Corea draws mostly on the compositions of piano legends Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell. His tonally intricate, rhythmic style lends itself to some bold solo interpretations of well-known Monk originals like "Monk's Dream," the quirky "Blue Monk," and the signature ballad "'Round Midnight."
  • The Bud Powell tunes "Dusk in Sandi" and "Oblivion" are interpreted equally strikingly, but with a gently tragic sense befitting their composer. Corea also chooses some cherished standards with which to let his unique imagination run free. Of these, Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays" and Irving Berlin's "How Deep is the Ocean" are the most stunning examples of the pianist's mastery of interpretation. The crystalline sound of the piano and the live audience response makes this set as appealing as its predecessor.
Professional Reviews

JazzTimes (11/00, pp.77-8) - "...Reveals aspects of Corea's improvisational strengths..."
