The Chick Corea Songbook
Released: Sep 2009
Label: FOUR QUARTERS RECORDS
The Manhattan Transfer continue to juggle more audience-friendly releases with challenging, sometimes risky, jazz material. To celebrate their 40th anniversary, the band adds lyrics to the free-floating compositions of Chick Corea (who wrote "Free Samba" especially for the project). Corea also appears, along with such jazz royalty as Christian McBride, Airto and Fred Hersch. Because of the labyrinthine nature of much of the music, it requires repeat listening, but it's a technical and artistic triumph for the vocal quartet.
