This is yet another diverse offering from the very varied career of Chick Corea.This album draws on a wide variety of influences -jazz,rock,fusion and world music and they all meld together in what is a unique and quite superb album.As you can see by the track listing that many of the pieces come in 2 or 3 part "mini suite" form which is perhaps the ony real fault with the album as it is often difficult to know where one track stops and another begins.That aside there is much great music to be had with,i think,Middle Eastern and African rhythms and melodies being the main influence here and the use of flute on most tracks is used to good effect to convey those feelings to the listener.There are a whole host of different musicians and instruments used with rarely the same lineup used on any two tracks.The likes of Tim Garland,Hubert Laws,Frank Gambale,Vinnie Colaiuta,Airto Moreira and many more all add their own personal touch to the proceedings.Chick himself plays both acoustic and electric keyboards and uses synth effects and electronic percusion programming to add further variety to the already eclectic mix.The stand alone pieces that are not in suite form are probably the best with "North Africa" possibly being the pick of the bunch.Although i have listened to this album a few times already there is so much music to absorb that only with repeated listenings will the listener really be rewarded.Great stuff to be listened to with an open mind (and ears of course!).

I've been a fan of Chick Corea for over 30 years, since I started my love affair with jazz in my teens, back in the late Sixties. He's an extraordinarily gifted musician who produced some of the most outstanding records back in the Sixties and Seventies and followed into the Eighties and Nineties with so many wonderful recordings. And very exciting concerts.
This is why I'm so deeply saddened with "The Ultimate Adventure", an evident demonstration that impeccable technique does not necessarily result in good music.
This record is simply B-O-R-I-N-G (and I stress the capital letters)! Each and every theme sounds just like the one before, in a sleepy, uninspired and seemingly unending progression lasting for over 73 minutes.
If you want to find the genius of Chick Corea's musicianship, please go look elsewhere in his discography, he's got so many perfect records!
I expected that Corea's enormous talent would overshadow the Scientology babble of L. Ron Hubbard that inspires this CD, but, unfortunately, the old con's "philosophy" turned into "religion" seems to have entirely dried up the talent of one of the most influential musicians of the last 40 years...
It seems that Chick Corea is now more interested in spreading Scientology than in making music. This is a major loss for music and music lovers...!!!
I rate this CD with two stars - and one is for the sake of the great contribution of Chick Corea to the music of the last half a century.
