Mid '80s budget reissue of Chick Corea - Jazzman. Matrix, Runout (Side A Label): AS-18078. Matrix, Runout (Side B Label): BS-18078.
Pianist Chick Corea's Return To Forever(RTF) project made him a superstar of sort at the late 70s, when RTF themselves were already inactive jazz fusion popularity in general experienced significant decline. Corea himself tried to find a new ground as solo artist playing everything from pop jazz to Latin to third stream, with only partial success. As a result, we know that most probably "Jazzman" contains same, or very similar material with that already released in 1972 on obscure Corea's "Sundance" album. Again, it looks that all compositions were recorded during same sessions as "Sundance", and very possible "Jazzman" combines some material, already released on "Sundance" with one or more outtakes.

List of all Chick Corea tickets and tour dates for 2019. The jazz icon has been nominated for 59 Grammy Award of which he has won twenty, his 1968 album How He Sings, How He Sobs has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and Corea continues to be one of the most influential jazz players of modern times. I am sad to say that after decades of following Chick I have to admit, this was not his best gig. Since I am also a pianist and jazz enthusiast, and have many hours of stage time, an old familiar set of phrases come to mind.
Following the massive live outpouring of music that marked the debut of Corea's band Origin, this studio album begins to fulfill some of the sextet's possibilities; hence, the completely appropriate title. The front line is unchanged from the live albums (Steve Wilson and Bob Sheppard on reeds and flutes, Steve Davis on trombone), Avishai Cohen remains on bass, and Jeff Ballard replaces Adam Cruz on drums
