1997 CD reissue.
This important live recording from 1981 features the great pianist with a stunning group: Joe Henderson on tenor sax, Gary Peacock on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. Haynes worked with Corea on many prior occasions, and Henderson was about to collaborate with him on the Griffith Park Collection albums of the early '80s, but this is the first time the three appear together.
Peacock's presence is an additional delight. The probing bassist contributes the multi-layered, magnificent "Up, Up and...." Thelonius Monk's "Trinkle, Tinkle" and Cole Porter's "So in Love" are also featured. The latter culminates in a four-minute Haynes drum solo. Overall, the record is essential for fans of any and all of the four musicians involved.
