Album Review: Chick Corea Trio - "Trilogy" (Score: 9/10)

1387568859_front1Legendary 20-time Grammy winning jazz pianist/composer Chick Corea’s spectacular new trio of veteran upright bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade (the rhythm section of Corea’s recent Five Peace Band) is so versatile, soulful, energetic and inventive live that they need three discs (culling performances from across the globe) to capture their expansive spirit. They tackle classic Corea tunes, jazz standards, unreleased originals and, most amazingly, introduce his kaleidoscopic half-hour long “Piano Sonata: Moon.” – Jonathan Widran
