Album: Chick Corea & Gary Burton, Hot House (Concord)
Sunday 01 April 2012
Historic reunion of the piano and vibes duo-masters starts unpromisingly on a hit-you-over-the-head-with-a-mallet version of "Eleanor Rigby", but recovers with gorgeous treatments of Weill's "My Ship" and Jobim's "Once I Loved".
It's a beautiful combination of instruments, whose tumbling rolls of melody form one of the great sounds of jazz. But you really need to hear their 1973 debut Crystal Silence before you hear this, good as it is. They play London's Barbican on 11 April.
