When Chick Corea recorded Piano Improvisations in 1971, he opened the floodgates on a new era of solo piano music, one that continues to resonate today. Portraits continues Chick’s solo piano evolution in a tour de force: in a full live performance, he embraces jazz standards, classical renditions and sublime Corea Classics.

The portraits that Corea “paints” of members of the audience are, if anything, even more personal because he tries to define the individuals in an improvised solo after inviting them to sit beside him on stage. Tracks are named after the locations in which they were conceived (e.g. Portrait #2 Casablanca, Portrait #1 Vilnius). They are short, but contain meaty and often exploratory material; and to my mind are generally more interesting than Corea’s famous Children’s Songs, nine of which occupy much of the disc. Of course, we don’t see the subjects that inspire these portraits, and therefore the audience’s response, which ranges from mid-tune applause to guffaws, is incomprehensible.
