Solo Works By Members Of Chick Corea's Origin Band
Originations contains tracks by Chick Corea & Origin as well as selections led by each individual member of the group. As a bandleader, Chick Corea ranks with the likes of Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and Charles Mingus.
Many of his numerous proteges have gone on to great success as solo artists. Origin, the band that Corea formed in the late '90s, is made up entirely of just such talented individuals.Originations provides a showcase for these talents, with nine tracks, led by each member in their own groups, along with two cuts from the Origin album Change.
Origin's band members vary greatly in their upbringing and musical backgrounds.
Bassist Avishai Cohen produces music that, while rooted in the jazz tradition, has an eclectic bent, with shades of varied ethnicity.
Trombonist Steve Davis is a member of the upper echelon of young New York musicians and contributes two straight-ahead cuts of exceptional quality.
Tim Garland and Steve Wilson, two fine saxophonists who reflect the inspiration of the great masters of the past, have an individual approach, and display their wares in signature fashion.
Finally, drummer Jeff Ballard produces the only previously unreleased cut, a furiously joyful piece that reflects his own distinctive approach to jazz.
