“Chick Corea and Stefano Bollani in their first recorded collaboration, a document of a most spirited gig in Orvieto’s Teatro Mancinelli last December. Effervescent virtuosity abounds as the two piano genii romp through a programme that includes Jobim’s Retrato Em Branco E Preto, the swing ballad Darn That Dream, Fats Waller’s Jitterbug Waltz, Miles Davis’s Nardis, blues, improvisations and more. The recording is Corea’s first new ECM date in more than a quarter-century.”

ECM might just be the finest recording company in the world.
