O’s Notes: Check Corea is a legendary pianist, living of course and still in prime form. He Plays on this solo outing experimenting by putting together classic and jazz composers and their ideas to construct a fresh approach that is intriguing. He opens by tuning up the audience, getting them ready for participation that takes the engagement up several notches! Influencers are Mozart, Gershwin, Wonder, Evans, Jobim, Monk and many others. The live audience continues their enthusiastic engagement through Disc #2. Chick is at peace, reminiscing past friendships on “The Yellow Nimbus” and then inviting several members of the audience to play piano on stage with him. He concludes with several songs from his Children’s Songs series reminding us of the innocent and creative spirit of youth.
