“I’ve used everything that I know on this record in terms of approaches.” When Chick Corea says that, you know you’re in for an adventure. That’s the case with his upcoming release, The Ultimate Adventure. Like the Elektric Band reunion recording To the Stars, Corea’s inspiration comes from a work by L. Ron Hubbard. Also like that CD, this sounds like a plugged-in project. Chick has an excellent promotional video on his site that you should see. You can learn about the vast variety of musicians on this project (Hubert Laws, Steve Gadd), the approaches Chick is referring to, the world music influences, and much more. I’m looking forward to this. It’s out on his Stretch Records label on February 7.
