Featuring an all-star line up with some of young Norwegian jazz’ top performers, the fantastic arranger and conductor Erlend Skomsvoll and the master himself; Chick Corea, this is a stunning live recording from start to finish. Together the 15-man strong ensemble and Corea tear through a set of classics such as Crystal Silence, Return to Forever and Spain live at the Molde Jazz Festival. Skomsvoll’s arrangements bring new life to Corea’s classics and it seems as if the composer really enjoys playing his own tunes in a new and vitalised setting. The contributions from soloists and rhythm section is nothing short of stunning – whey you take into account the ensemble’s low average age the album turns out even more impressive. sd
