Corea, Chick (piano) - 3CD-BOX: Solo Piano

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
- Box set in ECM's highly praised Old and New Masters Series. - Brings together all of Chick Corea's ECM solo piano recordings, in an era when Chick is again playing solo concerts.

- The distinguished solo piano tradition at ECM began with Corea's two volumes of "Piano Improvisations", recorded in 1971. In 1983, Corea recorded another solo project, "Children's Songs", with twenty short compositions for piano. (An "Addendum" to the recording found Chick joined by violinist Ida Kavafian and cellist Fred Sherry, in performance dedicated to producer Manfred Eicher)

- All three albums were "hits" in their original incarnations, with first volume of "Piano Improvisations" selling a quarter of a million copies, and winning an Album of the Year Award from US music industry magazine Record World.

- The "Piano Improvisations" albums are newly remastered from analog sources

- Booklet includes liner notes by Chick Corea and Neil Tesser plus rare archive photos.

"This was something entirely new", US journalist Neil Tesser recalls in his liner notes. "An album of free-flowing solo piano music untethered from the old forms." In 1971, taking time of from his schedule with fire-breathing avant-garde band Circle, Chick Corea responded to ECM producer Manfred Eicher's request for a solo album, and recorded enough material for two discs in an extremely spontaneous session which adds up to a kind of self-portrait of the artist. Many of his enthusiasms are revealed here - from a love of Thelonious Monk to influences from classical music and contemporary composition - e.g. harmonies echoing Ravel and Debussy. There is also a first sighting of Chick's "Sometime Ago", soon to be an important tune for the Return To Forever band. Chick's "Children's Songs" have been compared by some critics to Bartók's "Mikrokosmos": perfect miniatures of deceptive simplicity. Corea: "I became intrigued with the idea of making musical portraits. And children were my favourite subjects to portray." A few of the "Children's" Songs had been previewed by Corea in versions with Gary Burton (see the "Crystal Silence" collection), but the 1983 session marked the first time that Corea had played and recorded the entire cycle. Widely-loved by innumerable listeners, the "Children's Songs" have also been embraced by piano players of all levels. A publication of the scores by Schott Verlag also proved highly successful. In 2010 Corea's touring activity includes both solo concerts and work with Gary Burton and offers opportunities for promotion of both of Chick's boxes in this series.
