Oannes for Chick Corea

Το 1968 ο Chick Corea κυκλοφορεί το πρώτο του σόλο άλμπουμ. Διαλέγουμε τη δική του σύνθεση, ‘Straight Up And Down”, συναρπαστικό δείγμα post bop [be-bop σπρωγμένο στα άκρα + αβανγκαρντισμοί μετά λόγου γνώσεως]. Ο πιανίστας είναι πλαισιωμένος, όπως πάντα, από κορυφαίους : Woody Shaw – τρομπέτα, Joe Farrell – τενόρο σαξόφωνο, φλάουτο, Steve Swallow – μπάσο, Joe Chambers – ντραμς

In the year 1968, Chick Corea releases his first solo album. From this we pick his own composition, ‘Straight Up And Down’, a fascinating token of post bop [be-bop pushed to the limits, “appropriate” use of avant-gardisms] The pianist is surrounded by top musicians, as always: Woody Shaw – trumpet, Joe Farrell – tenor saxophone , flute, Steve Swallow – bass, Joe Chambers – drums.

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
