An essential addition to any Chick Corea collection or jazz library, this 1972 album by Corea and vibraphonist Gary Burton—the first of several collaborations—helped establish the viability of a modern chamber approach to jazz. Corea's relaxed, seamless use of jazz, folk and Latin forms, together with classical complexity and rigor, dovetail flawlessly with Burton's gifted mallet work, making for an especially enjoyable affair. The key to one of the most fruitful and enduring collaborations in jazz lies in these recordings.
