Chick Corea – The Sun

Oct.23, 2012


Chick Corea – The Sun , Toshiba Express ETP-9016, 33 1/3 rpm (JAP) 1970

Very rare japanese only lp


This is a very interesting release with music that is of extreme quality. Wild and free. Chick Corea during the Miles Davis  – era… and pre Circle – pre fusion…

This is WILD!

Music only came out in Japan. This is the very rare1st issue. The 2nd issue is rare as well.


2 nd pressing


And you NEED the music!


Holland and DeJohnette are in amazing form, gushing and flowing freely but also with an amazing timing and feel.. An amazing pairing. It is quite a telepathic interplay here. One of the strongest drums & bass pairings ever in the history in jazz and improvised music.

Steve Grossman is playing highly creative and with great imagination.

Grossman is one of the most underrated tenor voices and this recording is for sure one of hís most essential work.


An extremely interesting period in the jazz history with some insane free playing! Inside…  and outside. It is all there!

The hardest to get in the extensive Corea discography. And according to DC – the ONE to get from a musical and historical standpoint!
