Piano icon Chick Corea releases 3-CD set “Trilogy” w/Christian McBride & Brian Blade
“The award-winning jazz pianist-composer (20 Grammys and counting) teams up with bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade for this three-disc set. It overflows with marvelous originals and exhilarating interpretations of standards.”
“Corea has had many trios over the years, and this one certainly ranks amongst his most memorable… It’s hard to believe that Corea is now 73 years old but, if anything, he’s never been more active—and, with albums as superb as Trilogy, in the company of the equally outstanding McBride and Blade, clearly at the top of his game.
