About Corea Concerto (1999)

A radical—but highly noteworthy and Grammy winning—live performance of Corea’s first original symphonic work, featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra and his Origin group performing a Mozart-inspired concerto and perhaps the definitive version of “Spain.” Corea plays with as much passion here as any of his albums, most everyone else is equal to the task, and in short this is as fine a blend of of classical and jazz as anyone can reasonably expect to hear. — AllAboutJazz
