I've been living with this music for over a week now, listening almost daily to entirety of disc one (which is the core of the music here). I have almost every single release Corea has made since his Blue Mitchell days, all the way through his Miles years, free years with Braxton, Altschul and Holland, RTF years, all the ECM releases, the Trio Music releases with Haynes and Vitous, the Elektric/Akoustic releases, the Verve releases, the Stretch releases, his fantastic work with Origin, and all his work from the past decade.
In my opinion, this release demonstrates a new level of aptitude in composition for this artist. It surpasses his release on Sony classical about a dozen years ago. It shows heavy Bartok influence in certain parts but with a thoroughly refreshing emphasis on Jazz which is what Corea is best at. I can't recommend it higher than calling it the best new release I have picked up in several years. Bernie Kirsh did a fantastic job with the recording as well. Great to see such a deserving artist being featured on Deutsche Grammophon.
Certainly a contender for best of 2012!
