About The Continents (2012)

Chick Corea presents his “musical dream,” a new composition “in the spirit of Mozart” – where jazz, Latin, and classical converge into a globally inspired concerto for jazz quintet and chamber orchestra.

The Continents is performed by Corea with a hand-picked all-star orchestra including members of The Harlem Quartet and Imani Winds, among others – and conducted by Steven Mercurio at the Manhattan Center Studios in June 2011.

The second disc includes Corea’s improvised solos – and four tracks with his jazz quintet from the same sessions.
