CHICK COREA- Children's Songs LP
Chick Corea, who cites Béla Bartók as a major influence, had, throughout his career, written brief miniatures he called “Children’s Songs.” In some ways, Corea’s lyrical but nevertheless rich in structure “Children’s Songs” were his versions of Bartók’s Mikrokosmos series.
Nineteen solo piano excursions comprise 20 separate ideas from Corea's fertile imagination, childlike in essence but mature in execution. There's a real sense of learning, growth, and true understanding progressively strewn through these pieces. Fans of Corea and Return to Forever will readily recognize some of these songs!
"I'd like to gave my thanks to all who have enjoyed the songs - both listeners and players ..." - Chick Corea
