iTunes Review

Thanks to his landmark work with Return to Forever, Chick Corea always creates a big stir when he puts together an electric jazz band. But he's also seemingly interested in playing every stripe of jazz under the sun, so the hyper-restless Corea doesn’t do electric jazz as often as he might. Recent examples over the last decade include the all-star Five Peace Band with John McLaughlin and the Return to Forever reunions with a few different lineups and concepts. Now past 70, Corea surrounds himself with a versatile electro-acoustic quintet (whose players are decades younger), as well as some special guests. Together they tackle some of Corea’s most complex material ever, with “Pledge for Peace” lasting 17 and a half minutes and “Portals to Forever” not much shorter. It takes time to get to where you're going with electric jazz space travel—and with this kind of jazz, the trip is more important than the destination. With only the short “Outside of Space” available individually for download, this album is about the long haul. It starts strong and builds momentum from there, measuring up to fans' lofty expectations.

I've been listening to Chick for 30 years,this is average at best and underwhelming at the very least. A great band on paper but we truly have heard all of this before and there is nothing to see here lads, move along.........

I might give it a try

Performance at Jazzfest was brilliant

Chick and the Vigil group did three songs from this album during an inspired set at Jazzfest in New Orleans, and the crowd (and I) went wild. This material was instantly recognizable as Chick Corea, but maybe more thoughtful and creative than ever.

Chick Corea has been one of the most significant jazzmen since the '60s. Not content at any time to rest on his laurels, he has been involved in quite a few important musical projects, and his musical curiosity has never dimmed. A masterful pianist who, along with Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett, was one of the top stylists to emerge after Bill Evans and McCoy Tyner, Corea is also one of the few electric keyboardists to be quite individual and recognizable on synthesizers. In addition, he has composed...
