Chick Corea
(b. 6/12/41 - Chelsea, MA)

Title: Now He Sings, Now He Sobs
Personnel: Chick Corea (piano), Miroslav Vitous (bass), Roy Haynes (drums).
Recorded: 1968
Label: Blue Note
Comments: After getting his start with the Blue Mitchell Band, Chick Corea quickly went on to start his solo career. This CD is a classic trio recording featuring the fiery drummer, Roy Haynes.


Title: Chick Corea and Return To Forever - Light as a Feather
Personnel: Chick Corea (electric piano), Joe Farrell (tenor sax, flute), Stanley Clarke (bass), Airto moreira (drums, percussion), Flora Purim (vocals, percussion).
Recorded: 1973
Label: Polygram
Comments: In the 70's, Corea began his fusion period with the band, Return To Forever, and would subsequently play larger venues for a more mainstream crowd. Nonetheless, his playing remained sharp and crisp, and his music never suffered from "selling out." He remained true to his vision of the day.

Title: Origin - Live at the Blue Note
Personnel: Chick Corea (piano), Avishai Cohen (bass), Adam Cruz (drums), Steve Davis (trombone), Bob Sheppard (flute, tenor sax, soprano sax, and bass clarinet), Steve Wilson (flute, soprano sax, alto sax, clarinet).
Recorded: 1998
Label: Stretch
Comments: As all great artists will do, Chick Corea is constantly in flux, updating his vocabulary, creating new sounds. This recording highlights a new direction on his own record label, featuring many up-and-coming artists of the day.
