Many fans and critics consider the New Trio featuring Origin's drummer Jeff Ballard and bassist Avishai Cohen to be the greatest artistic achievement in Chick Corea's distinguished career. The band first achieved fame with its debut album, Past, Present & Futures, which hit the top of the Billboard charts. As demonstrated here, the trio's music is full of energy, playful and expressive and flavored with international nuances. Captured in High-Definition Video and CD-quality sound, this performance at New York City's Blue Note jazz club was part of a GRAMMY-winning series of historic and unprecedented concerts reuniting bands from Corea's four-decade career.
