Chick Corea & Origin – Originations

Chick Corea Chick Corea & Origin / Various Artists
(Stretch Records – 2000)
by Paula Edelstein

Chick Corea Presents: ORIGINATIONS is a clear indication of the depth and breadth of the talent represented in his highly acclaimed ensemble Origin, as well as the superior individual outgrowth from its artistic essence. Released on Stretch Records, this collection of 11 previously released songs recorded by Chick Corea & Origin, the Avishai Cohen Sextet, the Steve Wilson Quintet, the Steve Davis Quartet, and the Tim Garland Group is an excellent addition to any jazz collection because it provides such great samples of the originality inherent in the bands. The new composed “Beat Street,” recorded specifically for this date by the Jeff Ballad Trio, and “Psalm” which is taken from the Japanese version of CHANGE, adds further enjoyment and should fulfill any listener’s quest for a diverse musical palette.

The inclusion of the Grammy-nominated composition “Wigwam,” further bolsters Origin’s immense talent and stature in the music industry and is further evidence of the global appeal of Chick Corea as an innovator, master musician, and creative executive. With this collection of bands, compositions, and guest musicians that feature more than 65 minutes of great music from the “next generation” of jazz greats, the world can further experience the beauty of Corea’s mastery alongside the superbly creative jazz collective he has mentored. Enjoy!
