Trilogy is a triple-CD set recorded live around the world with Chick’s spectacularly virtuosic trio featuring bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade. Christian and Brian are both star leaders in their own right (and previously the rhythmic backbone in Corea’s Five Peace Band).
This is a recording to rank with the landmarks of Chick’s career — a marvel of live recorded sound that ranges from reinventions of classic Corea compositions and previously unrecorded originals to an array of jazz standards even freshly re-imagined Scriabin.
Chick said about his trio partners, “Both are master musicians and together we have an easy rapport. There is a lot of give and take in our music. It’s always a lot of fun.” Featuring guest appearances by Jorge Pardo and Nino Josele on “Spain,” and the ethereal vocals of Gayle Moran Corea on “Someday My Prince Will Come.”http://smarturl.it/TrilogyCD
“The diaphanous music that Corea, McBride and Blade unveiled only could have been created by the three of them at once. Theirs was a complex, finely woven sound, the musicians trading phrases and ideas with uncommon delicacy and ease.” — Chicago Tribune
