On September 9, 2014, Stretch Records/Concord Jazz will release Trilogy a recording to rank with the landmarks of Corea's career. Trilogy is a triple-CD set recorded live around the world with his spectacularly virtuosic trio featuring bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade, both star leaders in their own right (and previously the rhythmic backbone in Corea's Five Peace Band). A marvel of live recorded sound, particularly for having been captured in multiple stops on the road, Trilogy sees the trio reinvent classic Corea compositions (such as 'Spain'), as well as previously unreleased originals ('Piano Sonata: The Moon'). The group also performs an array of jazz standards (including two Thelonious Monk tunes) and even re-imagines a Prelude by fin-de-siècle Russian composer Alexander Scriabin ('Op. 11, No. 9'). The recordings were made live in Washington, D.C., and Oakland, CA; in Spain, Switzerland and Austria; and in Slovenia, Turkey and Japan. Corea, McBride and Blade are joined by special guests on three tracks: flutist Jorge Pardo and guitarist Nin o Josele in Madrid ('My Foolish Heart' and, aptly, 'Spain') and vocalist Gayle Moran Corea, the pianist's wife, in Sapporo ('Someday My Prince Will Come').

Chick Corea & Béla Fleck, two master songwriters, musicians, and band leaders meet once again in a historic duet of piano and banjo. The Grammy-winning duet, combine Corea and Fleck s classic tunes with the music from their Grammy-winning album The Enchantment! With a mix of jazz and pop standards, crossing a myriad of genres, from jazz, bluegrass, rock, flamenco and gospel, this album captures the casual, intimate playing by both legends from different musical worlds. Fans of legendary jazz pianist Chick Corea and bebop/bluegrass banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck are well aware of the pair's previous collaborations (Corea guests on two Flecktones albums, and Fleck appears on Corea's Rendezvous in New York DVD), but on their full-length release in 2007, The Enchantment, the two went into the project with an intense seriousness of purpose. On Two, they continue to push each other in a live setting, adapting their instruments to genres (bluegrass, country, Latin, ragtime, classical, blues, and world) normally outside their idioms, Corea playing 'grassy banjo patterns on the piano on Fleck's mournful "Mountain" and Fleck stretching on Corea's suite-like "Joban Dna Nopia." With few exceptions, the compositions are only frameworks for vast improvisation, which might be expected. But instead of setting each other up for extended solos, Corea and Fleck join together with breathtaking precision and verve, weaving and intertwining through remarkable contrapuntal excursions, only to break and meet up again in perfect sync.
La chica de los siete nombres: La historia de una huida de Corea del Norte (Spanish Edition)
A los diecisiete años, Hyeonseo Lee sabía poco del mundo que había más allá de las fronteras de Corea del Norte. Aunque algo intuía. A diferencia de sus conciudadanos, atrapados, como ella, bajo una dictadura feroz, su hogar, situado junto a la frontera china, le permitía tener algún atisbo de lo que había más allá. De modo que cuando, a mediados de los noventa, la hambruna asoló el país Hyeonseo empezó a hacerse preguntas. Vivía rodeada de represión, pobreza y hambre: sin duda su país no podía ser, como le habían dicho siempre, «el mejor del planeta», ¿verdad?Lo que se cuenta en este libro es la historia no sólo de la huida de Hyeonseo y sus largos años de vida en la clandestinidad, sino también de su paso de la infancia a la edad adulta, de su reeducación, de su habilidad para reconstruir con éxito su vida, no una vez, sino dos, primero en China y luego en Corea del Sur.Fuerte, valiente y elocuente, su voz es también buena prueba del triunfo del espíritu humano frente a la arbitrariedad de uno de los regímenes más brutales del mundo.
