A poignant reflection concludes the liner notes for this live recording from 2018 of Chick Corea’s Akoustic Trio. The two sets on this double CD marked the first gig in a tour for the line-up of Corea, John Patitucci and Dave Weckl, after a more than twenty year hiatus since their heyday in the 80s and 90s. In notes prepared soon after, revelling in the undiminished dynamism of the band, Robin Kelley expresses the wish that we won’t have to wait another twenty years to repeat the experience. With Corea’s death earlier this year, this set is now the first posthumous release of a Corea performance and there’ll be no repeats, but this recording will stand as a document to an occasion bursting with energy and optimism.

This was one of several trios in Corea’s near six-decade career and was also the core of his Elektric band. They brought a distinctive muscularity and energy to a repertoire of Corea originals and standards. The two live sets from one evening in 2018 were preceded by only a brief rehearsal so that, in the words of Corea, ‘we could end together’, and re-visited much of that book. They open with the leader’s Morning Sprite, close the first set with his Humpty Dumpty, standards Summer Night, In a Sentimental Mood, On Green Dolphin Street, Monk’s Mood , You and the Night and the Music all get an outing. They play as if no time had passed, with a sympathy and responsiveness to each other that is thrilling.
