About Septet (1985)

Mr. Corea, a jazz pianist, composer and band leader of enormous repute and success, was commissioned to write his septet by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, six of whose members joined him in this performance. The composer’s gifts were abundantly evident, both in his manipulation of the instruments and in his own keyboard work, which was characterized by powerfully insistent rhythms and rich embroidery. It was easy to hear why he has found a big audience. – The New York Times, reviewing a live performance of Septet.
