In 1989, pianist Chick Corea released the first album of his Akoustic Band with bassist John Patitucci and drummer Dave Weckl. In fact, this was an unplugged version of his well-named Elektric Band. Twenty years after their last concerts with this line-up, the three men reactivated their stunning partnership on stage once again for a tour which gave rise to this live recording at the SPC Music Hall in St. Petersburg, Florida in 2018. This is the first release since the pianist's death on 9 February 2021, and the album is a pure marvel. It's worth paying attention to the three men's stunning virtuosity and savouring their exchanges. The communication between them is almost telepathic, as on the opener, Morning Sprite. And over 135 minutes of melodic mind-melding, they do not let up once. Spontaneity is at the heart of this music. As Corea puts it, "I grew up in a tradition of play-now-first-takes. The idea of playing a piece over and over until it’s ‘just right’ was never part of my makeup. I always experienced the first take as the magic one. It may have a few missed notes, but it always had that tingle that makes performance exciting…" And his reworkings of standards from the old Akoustic Band repertoire are just as exciting. For the first few minutes of Ellington's In a Sentimental Mood in which he plays solo before the rhythm section comes in, Chick Corea confirms—in case anyone doubted it—that he was one of the greatest pianists of his generation... © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Paolo Fresu in 10 Albums

Paolo Fresu is a stream. Of elegance. Of music. Of textures of sound. Of records. But above all, of meetings. His name appears on more than 300 albums, each more varied than the last. But the Sardinian trumpeter has always remained a craftsman of a lyrical jazz, refined and elegant. Shockingly elegant even! For his 60th birthday, which he will celebrate on February 10, we take a look back at a very subjective selection of ten of his albums...

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
