5.0 out of 5 stars Portrait of the Jazz Pianist as a Recitalist 23 Jan. 2002
By Karl Henning - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Brasilia" is charmingly simple; Corea's playing moves with an easy grace, yet there is no "auto-pilot" to those passages which shed virtuosity. On this piece, especially, one notices (as another reviewer has observed) the variety of articulation of which Corea is capable.
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime 30 Jun. 2000
By Asanka Perera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Corea plays Corea (with some material adapted from Scriabin) and the result is a wonderful assortment of tracks covering a broad range of colours, moods and rhythms. Sometimes it is his inimitable lyrically seamless shower of notes against the assymtrical left hand rhythms of which he is a master, then it is the dissonant avant-gardish textures he weaves (echoing his "circle" days)or sometimes it is the ethereal and wistfully impressionistic pieces like "Yellow Nimbus". The four improptu tracks, inspired by images suggested by a live audience in Sweden, are cliche-free and gives you an idea of the rich musical ideas Corea has at his disposal. Recording (and the sound of his Yamaha) is top-notch too. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful record 1 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Is this a five-star record? I don't know. It's definitely close, though. The opening cut, "Brasilia," is my favorite--such a haunting, tender melody. A short version of "Spain" is very nice too, as are the Scriabin-inspired pieces, but the whole thing is fabulous, among Corea's best solo playing since PIANO IMPROVISATIONS of the early '70s.
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that good 27 Sept. 2000
By Derek Irving - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The value of a record is always something relative. It depends on individual taste and expectations. After listening to older records of Corea playing acoustic piano as "Now she sings now she sobs", and even more resent ones as the one recorded recently with Gary Burton and Pat meteney, this solo record of Corea lacks drama, unexpectedness and the drive I expect from a Jazz musician. With the exeption of "Spain" this record seems boring to me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ready to Play 6 July 2009
By Karl W. Nehring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The title pretty well sums it up: Chick Corea at the piano, playing music of his own composition. If you have ever heard much of his playing, you should know what to expect (and I mean that in a positive way, not as a putdown). The music is energetic, rhythmic, mysterious at times, a little exotic in places, and lots of fun. Even when his playing turns introspective, it never sounds gloomy or self-absorbed, and never, ever tentative. When Chick Corea sits down at the piano to play, he is ready to play, and play he does.

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.
