Biography

Chick Corea's four decade career is the stuff of jazz lore, an amalgamation of influential, limit-stretching musical experiences which have filled many a page in 20th century music history encyclopedias. Born Armando Anthony Corea in Chelsea, Massachusetts on June 12, 1941, Chick was studying piano by age four and enjoyed a childhood home filled with the sounds of Charlie Parker, Dizzy ...

BBC Review

Duos are often feted for their intimacy, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't have any energy. At their most dynamic, pianist Corea and vibraphonist Burton, formerly sidemen to Miles Davis and George Shearing respectively, make for a Catherine wheel combination, playing scores of notes in quick succession with a percussive drive and sharpness of attack that reflect a cast-iron command of bebop.

Sparks of excitement fly over the quicksilver melody of the title-track, a Tadd Dameron classic largely associated with Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. In negotiating the myriad chord changes and jumps in pitch needed to really capture the hyperventilating character of the piece, Burton emphatically highlights how liquid yet crisp and resonant the vibraphone can be, almost as if bells had been set into a keyboard that he drums instead of fingers. This set of mostly covers by jazz and pop icons like Monk, Brubeck and The Beatles lets the duo flex their muscles as soloists and both prove indeed adept at executing lengthy, winding figures and breathless shifts of tempo.

Yet, in contrast to the storms comes the calm of Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin’s My Ship, in which a gilded romanticism has faint echoes of Crystal Silence, Corea and Burton’s gorgeous 1973 debut that marked them out as purveyors of eerie proto-ambient music. As for Antonio Carlos Jobim’s Once I Loved, this new album’s highlight, it’s a reminder that both men, who played with Stan Getz, an early adopter of bossa nova, can capture the blend of leisure and melancholia that lends the idiom its subtle power. Corea weaves in a propulsive, broody bassline, built on small intervals, that enhances the dark emotional undercurrent and creates a tonal weight to offset Burton’s far lighter timbres.

The set mostly sustains this kind of quality, but it could have benefited from a touch more of the abstract thinking of which both artists are capable. While diehard converts won’t feel short-changed, others might wonder whether the duo could have sprung more surprises similar to the appearance of the Harlem String Quartet on the classical fantasia Mozart Goes Dancing.

Another demonstration of telepathic duo musicianship from the architects of the famous Zurich Concert of October 28th 1979. This time a mixture of 'standards' and jazz compositions from such masters as Tadd Dameron, Dave Brubeck and Thelonious Monk. I doubt that any more intricate, intelligent and interesting piano/vibraharp interplay has ever been captured to disk. Mesmerizing, magnificent stuff, thoroughly recommended.

I went to listen them live in London at the Barbican. Fantastic music & fantastic concert as well.
This CD is a must for all the lovers of Gary Buron and Chick Corea music.

Hot! Hot! Hot! ... (HOT!) Not one duff track. (HOT!) Excellent tunes and masterful technique! This CD finds Corea and Burton flowing beautifully together again. It's as good as anything they've done before. (HOT!) The 2nd track, Eleanor Rigby, never did much for me, not with the Beatles or without. In fact I always skipped the song whenever it appeared on a CD. Not on this CD I don't! Brilliant arrangement by Corea! ... Buy! Buy! Buy!

I agree that there may be too many five star reviews on "amazon" but that may be because people can't be bothered to rate a disappointing album.

I've had this CD since its release more than a year ago and every time I play something from it I find that I am compelled to stop any other distraction and really listen to it. Although the music is accessible, it isn't "easy listening". The selection of tunes is interesting and the interplay between the two musicians is wonderful.

Well worth adding to one's collection.

Perhaps amazon should introduce a crown designation for albums that a listener thinks are truly remarkable!

With the familiar combination of Chick Corea and Gary Burton I was expecting some spacey fusion but it turns out to be a comparatively straight jazz album (theres a phrase) with piano and vibes respectively swinging with the best of old masters and a taster of the stuff they hope to get down with chamber orchestra and jazz quintet (see Continents) all in all very enjoyable and a good listen - more than good. I also disvcovered from the cover notes that Corea is or was a scientologist which surprises me he's so good. Probably should have guessed when I saw the cover of Vigil
