New From Chick Corea!

Sept. 9 release ranges from reinventions of classic Corea compositions and previously unrecorded originals to an array of jazz standards and even freshly re-imagined Scriabin.
Chick Corea – an NEA Jazz Master and winner of 20 GRAMMY Awards – has been a prime mover in jazz ever since the late 1960s, when the keyboardist was a youngblood in the electrifying jazz-rock ensembles of Miles Davis.
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).
