Hot House

Chick Corea & Gary Burton

Since their first time playing together at the 1972 Munich Jazz Festival, Jazz piano legend Chick Corea and vibraphone pioneer Gary Burton have toured the world and recorded six albums as well as a live record together. Continuing their joint efforts, the pair released Hot House, their seventh collaborative studio album, on September 4, 2012.

Hot House includes standards from eight well-known composers—from Thelonious Monk and Bill Evans to Lennon and McCartney—but Burton explains “we chose songs that are generally not that well known; the composers’ names are probably more familiar than the songs to most listeners.” Hot House also features the Harlem String Quartet on a new Corea original titled “Mozart Goes Dancing,” a track originally planned for the duo’s next record together.
