Live in Molde - CHICK COREA and the Trondheim Jazz orchestra - CD
With Chick's Signature Stamp
Very limited - Only 4 remain!
Chick Corea’s enlivening piano performances with big bands of years past might have prepared listeners for his collaboration with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra at the Molde Festival 2000. But the devastating showcase of musical prowess that occurred there was unforeseeable—it’s become one of the great events in the history of the festival.
Erlend Skomsvoll’s arrangements for Chick and the big band bring out new colors in Corea’s compositions (“Crystal Silence,” “Armando’s Rhumba,” “Spain,” “Return to Forever” and more) throughout the concert. The tunes are intimately recorded here, with such crystal clear sound that it feels like you are actually sitting right in the front row.
Here is what Chick said about the Trondheim Band in an article in the San Diego Times:
"That band is a blast because of the leader, Erlend Skomsvoll, who is a composer and arranger. He didn’t just arrange my songs for a big band, he re-imagined them. He made it so they sound like his compositions with my music!"
