Chick Corea

The album’s hero is bassist Eddie Gomez – his deep groovy velvet bass is possibly the greatest element, giving a very personal feel to all of the music. […]

Chick Corea has a rich composition history, but I believe no one set is more profound than Three Quartets. Outstanding writing combined with outstanding performances makes this a modern jazz classic. […]
