On September 9, 2014, Stretch Records/Concord Jazz will release Trilogy a recording to rank with the landmarks of Corea's career. Trilogy is a triple-CD set recorded live around the world with his spectacularly virtuosic trio featuring bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade, both star leaders in their own right (and previously the rhythmic backbone in Corea's Five Peace Band). A marvel of live recorded sound, particularly for having been captured in multiple stops on the road, Trilogy sees the trio reinvent classic Corea compositions (such as 'Spain'), as well as previously unreleased originals ('Piano Sonata: The Moon'). The group also performs an array of jazz standards (including two Thelonious Monk tunes) and even re-imagines a Prelude by fin-de-siècle Russian composer Alexander Scriabin ('Op. 11, No. 9'). The recordings were made live in Washington, D.C., and Oakland, CA; in Spain, Switzerland and Austria; and in Slovenia, Turkey and Japan. Corea, McBride and Blade are joined by special guests on three tracks: flutist Jorge Pardo and guitarist Nin o Josele in Madrid ('My Foolish Heart' and, aptly, 'Spain') and vocalist Gayle Moran Corea, the pianist's wife, in Sapporo ('Someday My Prince Will Come').

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Featuring Chick Corea on piano, Christian McBride on bass and Brian Blade on drums all the tracks were recordings made at various public performances in the US and Europe during the period 2010-2012.
The integration and mutual awareness by members of the trio make Trilogy one of the most iconic of all piano-led jazz recordings. A "must have" set for all jazz fans.

All are outstanding.A great trio all round.
Now a grand old man of jazz,I have followed his career from the earliest days to now,and still enjoy his music.
Now I'm getting nostalgic for the Return to Forever days...must have a delve in the shelves,and rediscover my youth!
Oh,lest I forget--My Foolish Heart--best version since Bill Evans!
