Chick Corea, Eddie Gomez and Paul Motian "further explore" legend Bill Evan's piano trio aesthetic on new 2-CD set

"Jazz music is an art form that retains its viable life by the simple act of exploration. The never-ending sense of knowing that something of interest lies beyond that corner, down that road you see off the highway, when you look up and see the moon glowing in the night sky or when you hold a child in your armsÂ…Exploration is the lingua franca for these musicians, each an adventurer in his own right, yet bound by the excitement of this project to evolve quickly into a fully communicative jazz trio."
- Bob Belden, associate producer

The contributions of pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Bill Evans to the language and appreciation of jazz continue to have a profound influence on musicians. Join master pianist Chick Corea as he leads original Evans alumni - bassist Eddie Gomez and the late drummer Paul Motian - on Further Explorations(CRE-33364-02), a two-CD live set of 19 tracks scheduled for release January 17, 2012 on Concord Jazz, a division of Concord Music Group. The spirit of Evans comes alive thanks to the vibrant simpatico shared by these three master musicians.

Produced by Corea, Further Explorations was recorded May 4-17, 2010, live at the Blue Note in New York City. (2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of Evans' original Explorations LP with Motian and bassist Scott LaFaro on the Riverside label.) In preparation, Corea, Gomez and Motian examined the entire Bill Evans discography. Rather than approach the music as a tribute, his material provides more of a template. Each musician also contributes original material. The results are inspired, as this elevated piano trio plays with near-telepathic empathy and a remarkable blend of ingenuity and emotional depth.
