Music for String Quartet, Piano, Flute and French Horn

Chick had always demonstrated that his musical mind knows no limits, and Septet is a high water-mark even for him. This gorgeous chamber-music piece features Chick on piano accompanied by six brilliant musicians, playing an all-original Chick program.

"Mr. Corea, a jazz pianist, composer and band leader of enormous repute and success, was commissioned to write his septet by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, six of whose members joined him in this performance. The composer’s gifts were abundantly evident, both in his manipulation of the instruments and in his own keyboard work, which was characterized by powerfully insistent rhythms and rich embroidery. It was easy to hear why he has found a big audience." – The New York Times, reviewing a live performance of Septet.

"Writing Septet was my first venture as a composer into creating a through-written piece of this length and complexity. I must say I had great fun doing it. it began with no idea of form but only the idea that I would improvise the form as I wrote. I just kept writing until I ran out of time and then composed an ending."
- Chick Corea, July 18, 1985
