2.0 out of 5 stars Where has the creativity gone, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Vigil (Audio CD)
I am a massive fan of Ckick Corea, having most of his albums since the early 70s. He is, without any doubt, one of the most creative musings of his era. This album will not form part of his historic works. It's has the same masterfull musicianship from all invoice, except for mz Moran, but the album is lacking commitment. Has a bass player, I am a big fan of Hadrien Feraud but he disappears into background on this album, and even Stan Clarke cannot breakthough the lack luster arrangement. Gone are the melodies of Spain, or the incredible works of Return to Forever. I can only imagine that the album was rushed. The later live tracks do not have the individuality I expect from Chick Corea.

Don't get me wrong, this is still a good album, great musicians playing jazz what could be bad, and I have played it many times since I received it, via the excellent amazon app. In future years if I want to listen to a Corea album I'm not sure it will be this one one I reach for..

Slightly bemused that you say this is still a good album and you've played it many times yet give it only two stars - just a trifle harsh surely? I do appreciate you are aiming to differentiate from your favourite Chick albums. Cheers, Martin.
