One thing about both of those albums is that the stars allow the subalterns to shine -- John Pattitucci in Corea's case, Paul Desmond in Brubeck's case; but isn't that the height of musicianship?

Oh you're absolutely right, and such is the nature of jazz in general. It's history is built upon it's bandleaders mentoring and showcasing its supporting talent. I'm just saying that I think the implied focus of this thread (I could very well be talking out of my ass) is piano trios and solo piano, but the fact that you recommended Brubeck, such a great and legendary musician, pretty much blows my theory out of the water, so I'll shut up now.

Naw, naw...I just like context, is all. And St Pauli Girl.

eta: Just thinking that with musicians, generally, two (or more) heads are better than one. I've always loved playing more for collaboration than kudos, myself.

Take Five is Brubeck at his best, I think. I have never really delved into Corea's music, but I will now.

The other day I read something that said both Brubeck and Corea are scientologists. Hmmm.

Scientologists? Dun Dun DUUN.

Nah, just kidding.

I always liked pretty much any song by Louis Armstrong.

Dude, where's the love for Michel Legrand?

He's not only a capable jazz pianist, but he also has written tons of scores for movies.





Here he is jamming along with the one and fucking only master of the gypsy violin Stephan Grappelli.
