Notes & Reviews:

"Music was focused on rock and used jazz improvisation; Corea remained quite recognizable, even under the veil of electronic sound. He plays music that covers virtuoso passages of complex arrangements with solos in the style of fusion. It returns to its former strength jazz, and each phase of his creative development well before its wheels." - NeFormat

"Corea, the chameleon of jazz, is, of course, renowned for his collaborations with musicians of all kinds. Nicolaus Economou, a precociously talented pianist from Cyprus, received a classical training in the rigors of the Moscow Conservatoire in the late 1960s, before establishing himself in Munich." - The Music Shop

"Like a conversation between two insightful, intelligent men, who never quarrel because they appreciate and like each other" - Chaos

"Recording of a 1983 duet concert with jazz pianist Corea and classical pianist Economou. This mixes improvisations with Corea pieces selections from Bartok's Mikrokosmos." - Oxfam
