Chick Corea - Sundance

Having just taken the piss out of Xenu's footsoldier over on the Crap Jazz Covers blog, I thought it would be fair and balanced to throw out the only Corea album I've kept. Obviously, it's more out of respect to the label that released it, Groove Merchant and that's another reason it's here: to beef up El Goog's new
Groovy Merchant site. Be sure to check it out for more GM goodies!

AMG Review by Scott Yanow
Recorded during the same period as "Is," "Sundance" has four very advanced (if forgettable) Chick Corea compositions interpreted by a septet that includes trumpeter Woody Shaw, Hubert Laws on flute and Bennie Maupin on reeds. Actually, this is a lesser Corea item with plenty of rambling moments (although it is generally not as free as "Is") and is recommended mostly to completists of the pianist who are interested in his early development.

Chick Corea -
Hubert Laws - Flute
Jack DeJohnette - Drums
Dave Holland - Bass
Woody Shaw - Trumpet
Horacee Arnold - Drums

1 The Brain
2 Song Of Wind
3 Converge
4 Sundance

You can have this Sundance with Soundological HERE or HERE.

Also the only Chick Corea album I've kept. Primarily because Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette's nice team work.

Yeah Neu Mejican, Holland is excellent on this LP. I especially like their interplay on Song Of Wind.

Thanks for the Corea album. I had never seen this one before. I am a Corea fan and saw Return to Forever reunion when they came through Denver. Can't wait to listen to.
