  • Between the tides of Return To Forever and The Elektric Band, Chick Corea's recording projects focused on more intimate acoustic ensembles. Of these, the superb THREE QUARTETS is the best of the bunch. Recorded in 1981 at Corea's own Mad Hatter studio, it features the pianist at his creative best as well as his favorite partners Michael Brecker, Eddie Gomez and the inimitable Steve Gadd. Few other records of this period contain the powerful musical energy that was created when these four virtuosos came together.
  • The performances captured on this album are stunning. The complex "Quartet No. 1" offers a punchy melody that explodes into a furious solo by Brecker. The softer "Quartet No. 3" follows with dramatic chordal work by Corea and expressive solos by Brecker and Gomez. The epic "Quartet No. 2" is one of Corea's most dynamic works. The first section, a swinging ballad, is dedicated to the great Duke Ellington. The second, which features a mesmerizing solo by Gadd, is a hard swinger for John Coltrane. Bonus tracks include Corea's unforgettable "Hairy Canary" and an amazing Gadd/Brecker duet on Charlie Parker's "Confirmation."
Professional Reviews
Q (4/93, p.96) - 3 Stars - Good - "...the sort of deeply serious modern jazz around which a lesser talent might have based a decade's work..."
