    Gary Burton Quintet on the album "Like Minds", by Concord Records 1998.

    Again an album with old friends in music, among those Chick Corea. Opening song by Pat Metheny "Question & Answer".

    If I should mention one disability of Gary Burton then I would say he almost never composes songs for his bands, while with Chick Corea playing in duo they both create.

    The musicians:

    Gary Burton - vibraphone
    Pat Metheny - guitars
    Chick Corea - piano
    Dave Holland - double bass
    Roy Haynes - drums

    Gary Burton Quintet on the album "Dreams So Real", the ECM Records 1976.

    The musicians:

    Gary Burton - vibraphone
    Pat Metheny and Mick Goodrick - electric guitars
    Steve Swallow - el. bass
    Bob Moses - drums

    The title song Dreams So Real is a triumph for the ear, a slow ballad Gary Burton and the two guitarist dueling the three of them. In real life Pat Metheny remained with Gary Burton for one more year, while having released Pat´s first album ever "Bright Size Life" in 1976 as well. Mick Goodrick went on to the Carla Bley Orchestra. Never knew what happend to Bob Moses though.

    Back to Armando Anthony Corea aka Chick Corea born 06.12.1941 in Chelsea, Massachusetts, USA. His father played the trumpet and he was the band leader as well. Chick played the piano from the age of four, while studying with a private teacher. Studies at Columbia University and Julliard School of Music. Chick´s first job as a profesional pianist was in 1962 with Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo playing latin american music.

    From 1964-66 Chick played with Blue Mitchell (trumpet), later in 1967-68 with Stan Getz (tenor saxophone) and from the late 1968 with The Miles Davis different electric bands.

    Chick genereted his own band Circle with Dave Holland (double bass) and Barry Altschul (drums) with Anthony Braxton (soprano and baritone saxophone) from 1970.

    Then back to Stan Getz shortly in 1971, and then he originated the Return To Forever acoustic band in the middle of 1971. The RTF then was Flora Purim (vocals, percussion) Joe Farrell (tenor saxophone, flute) Stanley Clarke (double bass) and Airto Moreira (drums, percussion), the latter whom Chick knew from the Miles Davis Electric Band back in 1969-70 among the musicians the new John Mclaughlin (el. guitar).

    In 1972 Chick founded The RTF Electric Band. At the same time he added the keyboards and synthesizers to the performance on the piano and the el. piano, the group now with Bill Connors (el. guitar) Stanley Clarke (el. basses and double bass) and Lenny White (drums). From 1973 Al Di Meola replaced Bill Connors on the el. guitar. Five marvelous albums was released from The RTF Electric Band from 1972-76.

    During the 1980´s Chick has created new groups on and off, mostly bringing new talented ´jazz musicians to the stages and the recording studios in his various groups both electric and acoustic.

    Chick has played in duet and sextet with Gary Burton (vibraphone and marimba) and a string quartet for 35 years traveling the world.

    Two remarkable albums also in duo with Herbie Hancock (piano) in the late 1970´s.

    Chick´s life long personal and musical friendship with Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone) has been noted on several live performances from 1970-2000, mostly in quartets and quintets. In duo with John Mclaughlin as well many a time over the years.

    In 1978 with a new acoustic band Three Quartets - feat. Michael Brecker (tenor saxophone) Eddie Gomez (double bass) and Steve Gadd (drums) along with an acoustic trio feat. Miroslav Vitous (double bass) and Roy Haynes (drums) interpretating the music by Thelonious Monk.

    From the year 1980 he originated a new Chick Corea Electric Band with Eric Marienthal (saxophones), Scott Henderson and later on Frank Gambale (el. guitar), John Patitucci (double bass, el. bass) and Gary Novak and the monster drummer Dave Weckl from 1980 to-

    Playing in a trio with John Patitucci and Dave Wekcl as well 1980-1990.

    Then the sextet Remembering Bud Powell came about with Joshua Redman (tenor saxophone) Kenny Garrett (alto saxophone) Wallace Rooney (trumpet) Christian McBride (double bass) and Roy Haynes (drums) 1994.

    To be followed by another new sextet in 1994 - Origin feat. Steve Davis (trombone) Steve Wilson (flute, alto and soprano saxophone, clarinet) Scott Sheppard (flute, soprano and tenor saxophone, clarinet) Avishai Cohen (double bass) and Adam Cruz (drums).

    In 1995 the quartet feat. Bob Berg (tenor and soprano saxophone) John Patitucci (double bass) and Gary Novak (drums).

    Solo piano concerts playing standards and his own compositions as well from 1978-96.

    In the trio Past, Presense and Future with Avishai Cohen and Jeff Ballard (drums) 2001.

    With The London Orchestra and the sextet abowe in 2005 on the album "Spain".

    These days we´re back with the most innovative group of Chick´s from the 1970´s the revival of The Return To Forever Electric Band feat. Al Di Meola (acoustic and electric guitars) Stanley Clarke (el. basses and double bass) and Lenny White (drums, percussion).

    Beside the already mentioned bands Chick Corea has played and recorded with hundreds of other musicians.

    I believe it would be fair to say that Armando Anthony aka Chick Corea has done it all, and he was the one who realy opened up my eyes to jazz. Go on Chick!!

    First time in nine years, I have the ability to attend international jazz music played live. Look at the program below at the link:

    http://www.jazzfestival.dk/Start.aspx?NodeID=300

    So I wish for you far away in Montreal, Canada to have some great weeks of jazz

    Could you perhaps do us all a favour and enter your views on the jazz performances you will attend. You know from the eyes of the beholder. Thank you in advance.

    On topic:

    Chick Corea (piano) and Stanley Clarke (double bass) - Duo on the song "On Green Dolphin Street", composed by Ned Washington and Billy Draper. The album is called "Return To Forever", recorded by Columbia Jazz 1976, remastered by Sony Music 1997.

    The 5 songs on this album, except for the song "Romantic Warrior", are from the three double album "Return To Forever Live" with Al Di Meola (guitars) and Lenny White (drums) as well and the RTF Big Band 1976.

    I will be happy to let you know my perspective on the events I attend.

    You must then get to know our resident jazz specialist Intet-A-Tabe - He has quite the collection of jazz - I'm wondering if he isn't secretly trying to become a Jazz specialist for the Danish Radio Broadcast System.

    Back on topic: *Autumn Leaves* by Keith Jarrett.

    On topic:

    The latest album by the USA jazz guitar phenomena Pat Metheny is called "Day Trip", recorded by NoneSuch 2005 but only released in 2007.

    Ten new and older songs for the new trio by Pat Metheny (acoustic and electric guitars) feat. Christian McBride (double bass) and Anthonio Sanchez (drums). The music from this album was partly performed by this trio during the Europe Tour in 2005, but on the album Pat mostly play the electric guitar, not the 42 string Picasso custom built guitar nor the 12 string electric guitar, but there is one song with the guitar synthesizer.

    Pat has recorded for the trio 6 times 1976-2007:

    1. The debut "Bright Size Life" feat. Jaco Pastorius (el. fretless bass) and Bob Moses (drums) in 1976.
    2. "Rejoicing" from 1984 feat. Charlie Haden (double bass) and the late Billy Higgins (drums).
    3. In 1990 the trio album "Question & Answer" feat. Dave Holland (double bass) and Roy Haynes (drums).
    4. Then in 1999, Pat recorded with Larry Grenadier (double bass) and Bill Stewart (drums) on the album "99-00".
    5. To be followed by a double live album with the same "Trio Live" from 2000.
    6. "Day Trip", released in 2007 is the number five trio and 6th recording as a trio of Pat Metheny feat. Christian McBride (double bass) and Antonio Sanchez (drums).

    Obviously beside the more than 25 albums of The Pat Metheny Group (PMG) often with 4-6 members on various instruments, the small guitar-trio is very different to the PMG albums. Playing in the trio Pat needs a very strong bassist to keep the whole thing together, and he would not find a better bassist for the job than Christian McBride, who also has some of his very best solos on the double bass in his career.

    Now for Antonio Sanchez, the very young however most awesomely talented drummer, first with Pat on the album "The Way Up" from 2005, it´s been a great thrill to listen to him in this trio, where Sanchez gets much more space than on the "TWU" album.

    Sanchez is the kind of drummer, who continously will surprice you during the 10 songs, never to do the expected drumming. His cymbal work is just AWESOME, and like with both Jack DeJohnette and the former drummers in the PMG Danny Gottlieb and Paul Wertico, Sanchez knows excactly when and how to play up to Pat, freakin´on the electric guitars up and down the neck of the guitar, but also when to join McBride for the backing, while Pat reaches so far unknown borderliner territory on his electric guitars.

    This is an AWESOME trio, finally on stock at my house. Songs like "Son Of Thirteen" - "Is This America" and the older song "When We Were Free" do not have any comparison at all, but then Pat Metheny can not be compared to anyone else as a phenomena on the jazz guitar nor as a composer and bandleader to anyone else, I know of - except for John Mclaughlin, IMHO. Funny though that the total playing time on "Day Trip", is excactly the same as on the former album The Way Up - 68:10.

    Of course having every Pat Metheny album now, except the album recorded in Poland with Maria Jopek, feeling totally embraced and overwhelmingly happy, but since Pat and I both were born in that very innovative year of 1954, he realy owes me to come to Denmark and play live sooner than soon. I would enjoy to shake his hand in respect.

    My dear friend Intet,

    Call it coincidence or whatever you want, but I happen to have this album Pat recorded with Anna Maria Jopek. It is called Upojenie. If you are interested in having this album too, send me PM and we will work it out somehow


    Respectfully,
