Chick Corea, Eddie Gomez, Paul Motian, ‘Further Explorations’
It is no hyperbole to call this a monumental recording. “Further Explorations’’ unites pianist Chick Corea with two alumni of Bill Evans’ trios - bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Paul Motian (who died in November) - in reinterpreting songs associated with Evans. The tenures of Motian and Gomez in the Evans trio did not overlap, so it’s interesting to hear them join up on this double-CD set, which is drawn from a two-week stand at the Blue Note in 2010.
