Overview

This post-Return to Forever Chick Corea LP is a bit of a mixed bag. Corea is heard on his many keyboards during an atmospheric "The Woods," interacts with a string section on "Tweedle Dee," features a larger band plus singer Gayle Moran on a few other songs and even welcomes fellow keyboardist Herbie Hancock for the "Mad Hatter Rhapsody." The most interesting selection, a quartet rendition of "Humpty Dumpty" with tenorman Joe Farrell set the stage for his next project, Friends. Overall, this is an interesting and generally enjoyable release.

The Mad Hatter although not the only great work of Chic Corea, by far, is one of the most fun, for me. Following the Alice In Wonderland theme and employing the musical monsters of jazz Chic Corea takes us on on a journey not easily forgotten. Difficult CD to get and very expensive but worth every minute of the wait and every penny of the cost.
