Piano Improvisations, Volume 1

Stille Nacht

By Chick Corea

Stille Nacht. Composed by Chick Corea. Arranged by Bill Dobbins. Book. Published by Advance Music (AV.9005).

Item Number: AV.9005

Complete piano transcriptions from the ECM recording, transcribed by Bill Dobbins. Chick Corea's "Piano Improvisations" recordings for the ecm label have been highly influential in the evolution of the solo jazz piano tradition since the early 1970's. Along with recordings by Keith Jarrett and Paul Bley, they inspired a renewed interest in the art of solo piano improvising, which had been largely neglected since the era of Earl Hines, Fats Waller, Teddy Wilson and Art Tatum.

    These are staggeringly good transcriptions by Bill Dobbins. I really wish that people like him would also transcribe later albums by this artist, but it's worth buying this score if you want an insight into Chick's language.

    fainted when I saw this collection was available. The transcription is literally note for note, in the proper key and perfect! I congratulate Mr. Dobbins for an excellent job and hope he gives us more from Chick Corea.
