Notes and Editorial Reviews

Recording debut of a most exciting new duo - Chick Corea and Stefano Bollani - two of the greatest jazz pianists of our time. Recorded live at the Umbria Jazz Winter Festival last New Year, Orvieto is Chick Corea's first new ECM album in 27 years, and the next step in the label's ongoing association with Stefano Bollani. Effervescent playing, bubbling over with ideas and sparkling wit, it's likely to be one of the most widely praised and most discussed jazz albums of the season.

“Two pianists improvising together is a great challenge, and in these performances with Stefano, inspirational and great fun. There were no rehearsals for these performances – only a choice of songs to use. The freely improvised segments were
Read more spontaneous and not at all pre-arranged. Orvieto was winter-cold. The experience was summer-warm.”
-- Chick Corea
