Chick Corea Exploring Flamenco

Anyone familiar with jazz will know of Scientologist Chick Corea. His career was launched when jazz great Miles Davis had him play on two of Miles' wildest albums in the late 1960's. In the years since then Corea has consistently demonstrated his tremendous talent, winning seven (or is it eight?) Grammy's and getting on for 20 nominations. I personally am a big fan, especially of his work with the Chick Corea Elektric Band (I have all their albums). Anyway, lovers of his acoustic side (I have a ton of those albums too) will be exited at the news that he will be releasing a live album from his current flamenco oriented tour: Versatile jazz giant revisits flamenco influences for fun
