Inner Space collects tracks from Chick’s first album as a leader, Tones for Joan’s Bones, and adds unreleased material from the same time period. This is Chick in his prime early period, establishing his signature sound, both at the piano and as a composer (some of his best-known compositions, including “Straight Up and Down” and “Windows,” appear here). A stellar introduction to the first phase of Chick’s legendary career.
