(Very Limited Supply)
With Chick's Signature Stamp
If there was any doubt that Crystal Silence and Duet were in-the-moment, unedited albums of near-perfection, the chance to hear the duo live, from a single performance, put any such thoughts to rest. Opening the concert with the same track that began Crystal Silence, the fiery “Señor Mouse” is delivered with even greater energy, virtuosity and dynamics, hard though it may be to believe it possible.
Of the eight duet tracks on this now-restored set, there’s room for some new material from Corea, including the bebop-tinged “Bud Powell,” which would become a staple in later acoustic groups, and the brightly lyrical but equally thematic “Mirror, Mirror!”
