Master pianist Chick Corea first met the young and fiercely talented Hiromi Uehara for first time when she was just 17 years old. Since then, Hiromi had become an internationally recognized artist, with no less than three CDs of her own released from the Telarc label. They met again at the Tokyo Jazz Festival 2006, and wowed the audience with their very spontaneous piano duo performances.

A year later, they met for the third time and playd three nights at Blue Note Tokyo, and the result is this marvelous 2-CD set. I don't think I've ever heard such an exciting piano duo. Their technical and rhythmical prowess is amazing, and their ideas fresh and apparently limitless. They took a relatively free approach where either one of them could launch into a solo at any moment, and the other would react, sometimes comping and other times soloing simultaneously.

This type of interplay requires intense and sustained concentration on both sides, but that intensity did not turn into tension or competition betwen them: Instead it gave rise to an exhilarating joy of making music together that is palpable from this recording.

I cannot recommend this CD strongly enough. This is not just another CD. Rather, it is an event to be remembered. I seriously doubt that this 2-CD set can be bettered by any other that will be released in the rest of 2008!

Chick Corea's piano is heard from the left channel and Hiromi's from the right channel. Produced by Chick Corea. The package includes English liner notes by Corea and Uehara.

Recorded live at the Blue Note Jazz Club, Tokyo, Japan, in September 2007. Recorded by Bernie Kirsh. Mixed by Brian Vibberts at Mad Hatter Studios, Los Angeles. Mastered by Bernie Grundman, Bernie Grundman Mastering, Los Angeles. Swing Journal Gold Disc.
