In 2013, Chick Corea teamed up with a couple of gold-standard rhythmists - Christian McBride on the double bass and Brian Blade on drums - with whom he recorded Trilogy, a brilliant live album which saw him blend his own repertoire with classic standards by Thelonious Monk, Jerome Kern, Oscar Hammerstein, Kurt Weil, Irving Berlin & co. Just as the title indicates, Trilogy 2 repeats the exercise: same cast, same idea, same great result. Of course, the relationship between the three of them has been consolidated over the years. And while Corea’s piano remains one of the best of his generation, it’s the McBride/Blade tandem that really shines as a creative stroke of genius. The accuracy of their interventions and punctuations are staggering, never off-kilter and never over the top. Finally, the repertoire is a touch more original than on the previous Trilogy, with Steve Swallow’s Eiderdown, Monk’s Crepuscule with Nellie, 500 Miles High by Return to Forever, Lotus Blossom by Billy Strayhorn as well as Pastime Paradise by Stevie Wonder. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Latin Jazz - Released June 28, 2019 | Concord Jazz

Chick Corea has always been an ambassador of jazz across the world, from the U.S.A to Brazil, as well as Europe - especially Spain. The latter’s musical heritage is the focus of celebration with the Spanish Heart Band. Throughout Antidote, the pianist weaves his way through latin jazz territory, backed by a five-star cast of Spanish, Cuban, Venezuelan and American musicians, covering songs from his own albums My Spanish Heart (1976) and Touchstone (1982). Corea also adds a few new tracks, and covers Jobim, Paco de Lucia as well as Stravinsky. Within this octet, he brought together the flamenco guitarist Niño Josele, flutist and saxophonist Jorge Pardo (two bandmates of the late Paco de Lucia), the bass player Carlitos Del Puerto, percussionist Luisito Quintero, the trumpeter Michael Rodriguez, trombonist Steve Davis and the drummer Marcus Gilmore. His motley, diverse jazz is a natural bridge between flamenco and bossa nova, rumba and soul, salsa and classical music. A rainbow which reminds us how original this musical approach is, that it’s kept jazz from biting its own tail for half a century. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Jazz Fusion & Jazz Rock - Released January 19, 2018 | Stretch Records

With this reunion, Chick Corea and Steve Gadd don’t just set their solid friendship in stone, but rekindle the flame of the jazz fusion with funky tendancies from the 70s - when the genre was reigning; both for the best and for the worst, by the way… For the occasion, the pianist and the drummer have gathered together a strong cast with guitarist and singer Lionel Loueke, saxophonist and flautist Steve Wilson, bass player Carlitos Del Puerto and percussionist Luisito Quintero. The first time that Corea and Gadd's paths crossed was in 1965, when the former briefly joined Chuck Mangione’s band, in which the latter was performing. In the ten years that followed, Corea became one of the most influential keyboard players and composers of his generation. At the same time, Gadd was quickly recognized as a big name in the drum community, astounding Paul Simon and Steely Dan among others. In 1972, Chick Corea decided to transform his group Return to Forever, with which he had until then explored the richness of Latin and Brazilian music, into a jazz rock band of which Steve Gadd became the first drummer. His numerous commitments as a studio musician would prove incompatible with the long tour planned by the band, which didn't prevent him from later taking part in the recording of several of Corea’s albums such as The Leprechaun released in 1976, My Spanish Heart, a brilliant blend of electric jazz and Latin rhythms (whose echo can be heard throughout Chinese Butterfly) and Three Quartets in 1981, a profound shift in Corea’s composing career. When the two musicians finally meet up in Chick Corea’s studio in Florida at the beginning of 2017, the alchemy was once again immediate, propelling the composer into a creative frenzy that quickly gave birth to two tracks, Like I Was Sayin’ and Gadd-zooks. “I’ve always enjoyed composing music for a band, and hearing what Steve would do with my compositions, explains Chick Corea. When we started playing those two tunes together, it felt so good that we started to talk about putting a band together.” Though he’s credited as the only composer of most of the eight tracks of the album, Corea maintains that the record is the result of teamwork and that it would never have seen the light of day without Gadd’s rhythmic sensitivity. “It’s a co-creation, the pianist insists. I write the compositions, and Steve puts together the form of the rhythm, which is the backbone of the band. In my music, rhythm is everything – if the music doesn't have the right emotion and rhythm, it can’t live.” It’s a sincere complicity that gives birth to an album filled with emotion and virtuosity. It’s worth noting that Phil Bailey, the great falsetto from the original cast of Earth, Wind & Fire, makes a strong appearance on this record which is in phase with its cover, where the instruments of the different members are arranged to form a butterfly: two pianos form the wings, the drums the head and the thorax. © CM/Qobuz
