A lengthy tone poem based on the L. Ron Hubbard story THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE, Chick Corea's album of the same name is an evocative excursion into jazz fusion. With the help of old friends and cohorts (Airto Moreira, Steve Gadd) and the members of his new band, Touchstone, Corea has created a sound narrative that is as enticing and image-filled as its literary inspiration.
Hubert Laws's sinuous flute and the use of palmas and auxiliary percussion give ULTIMATE ADVENTURE an exotic, Middle Eastern sound, with wisp-like phrases of melody floating above a simmering bed of rhythm. Corea's keys playing is as adventurous as ever, veering between classically-infused flourishes, hard rhythmic comping, and deliciously abstract melodies.
