Same way as five years ago, with first snow Chick Corea acoustic trio’s live recordings collection from world tour comes again this early winter. Titled “Trilogy 2” it is obvious continuation of their successful 2013 Japanese release (in 2014 released in Europe and US as well). Complied from 2010-2016 concerts, this time it is a double CD (previous one was a triple) and comes from Japan again. Most probably next year will offer more accessible Western editions as well.
Working formula didn’t change a lot – with opener “How Deep Is The Ocean” (the only song presented on both first and second “Trilogies”) with Corea’s Latin/Fusion hits “500 Miles High” and “La Fiesta”, his early success “Now He Sings, Now He Sobs” and few standards.
As in case with first “Trilogy”, biggest interest here is a new interpretations of known songs. Started with very relaxed and even unusually for him slightly sentimental manner, Chick after few first songs returns back to more dynamic enthusiastic grooving post-bop – music he plays best starting from mid 70s.
Despite of obviously entertaining character of presented material, trio of highest class professionals never sound repetitive or boring, mostly because of unexpected takes on well known material. It’s really impressive to hear how different from popular versions many songs sound without leaving mainstream/chamber jazz frames.
