"Yellow Nimbus" is a fiery, exhilirating dance. Like Albéniz' "Iberia," it is the sort of music written for the piano, by someone who believes it is really a kind of big, black Spanish guitar.
The Skryabin preludes are a curious matter. Skryabinists may find they don't especially recognize the composer here; and Corea's audience may come away with the impression that Skryabin was really a sort of Chick Corea, only a century ahead of time. That said, these tracks just sound like part of Corea's sound-world (a very different matter to the Duke Ellington `Nutcracker' arrangement, whose chief virtue [for me] is, that it is not so irredeemably bad as the recently-released Klezmer `version' of Tchaikovsky). I do not begrudge the pianist the liberties he takes with these preludes.
The three "Children's Songs" are playful without being child's play.
The four `improvisations after suggestions from the audience' are delightful, and a testimony to the agility, and inventiveness of Corea at the piano; this, true even while there are images (snow, a chase) at whose musical portrayal Corea is hardly a novice, and even where we hear affectionate musical bows to Debussy (in "the Falcon"), for example.
"Armando's Rhumba" and "Spain" are both signatures, and both are treated here with both affection and freshness. If Corea is at all tired of playing these after all these years, he wears the mask well: no tiredness HERE. There are, by turns, bursts of incisive energy, and reflections of the utmost delicacy.
I wish the public knew more about Corea, what a wonderful talent he is. If I were king, I would cancel the next Grammy Awards show and force those who would have tuned in to watch Corea play for two hours. This might be tyrannical of me, but my subjects would be better off and more enriched than they would by watching Garth Brooks groan oh-so-sensitively under his cowboy hat or by watching Britney Spears gyrate in her dangerous ... way. All this preaching is to say that Corea's music, ORIGINALS included, will be around for a long, long time. The same cannot be said for the great majority of the other stuff out there.
Some cuts sound nearly classical, others are more jazzy. Some of his "Children's Songs" are here, along with cuts we have heard before, such as "Armando's Rhumba" ("Armando" is Corea's actual first name) and the evocative "Spain." The recording, made at various live performance venues, is clean and dynamic; this disk is a winner on all counts.
