Personnel: Chick Corea (piano); B‚la Fleck (banjo).
The pairing of post-bop icon Chick Corea with nu-grass banjo wizard Bela Fleck makes perfect sense. Both are consummate musicians dedicated to the ideal of fusing disparate styles into a protean form that knows no bounds, and creating an ever-shifting music whose only criterion is the beauty of artistic expression.
THE ENCHANTMENT (2007), an album of dialogues between Corea's piano and Fleck's banjo, adheres to the musical standards of both artists. Spare yet complex, beautiful and accessible yet challenging, THE ENCHANTMENT channels Latin ("Senorita"), classical ("A Strange Romance"), bluegrass ("Mountain"), jazz ("Joban dna Nopia"), among other styles, into a seamless musical whole.
