Three Quartets [Bonus Tracks]

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This encounter between Chick Corea sticking to acoustic piano, tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker, bassist Eddie Gomez, and drummer Steve Gadd lives up to expectations. The original program featured three lengthy "Quartet" pieces including sections dedicated to Duke Ellington and John Coltrane. The CD reissue adds four briefer pieces that were previously unissued, including an unaccompanied Brecker workout on "Confirmation" that would be perfect for "blindfold" tests. This blowing date is highly recommended for all true jazz fans.

    Frenetic

    I'm a big fan of these artists on their own, and in a myriad of other combinations, and have owned this album for at least a decade, but this particular one is always one I have difficulty listening to, and never gets played. Brecker is amazing as always, but I feel the compositions, with their largely unsingable melodies don't allow any of the players really shine. The drum/tenor duo on track 8 sounds uninspired compared to Brecker's solo album with DeJohnette. This one is polite, reserved, and I can't believe I'm gonna say, "boring." My advice is to look elsewhere for what these musicians are truly capable of. Listening to to this one makes me tired, and some tracks are just annoying.

    These guys at their best

    To me, this is one of the best records these guys ever made. Great compositions by Corea, rich harmonies (this is the album for the lovers of 4th), all the quartets equally great (check out the first quartet!). Steve Gadd is simply amazing on this one. He's got a truly inspired solo on quartet 2 part 2, one that will leave you wondering how he came up with such cool and subtle riffs. Brecker and Gomez are amazing too. This is what jazz is all about. Something that wakes you up. Out of the beaten tracks (but not too much though, not like the early Corea). I think you can get the music scores for these quartets directly from Corea. The original LP didn't include the bonus tracks that, in my opinion, are no match for the quartets (some of them are downright annoying!).
