Gold Collection [2 Disc] Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Fine Tunes' The Gold Collection contains a selection of seven Robert Schachner-produced recordings that Chick Corea originally did for Music Merchant/Recording Arts. Although this has a couple of nice performances of standards like "Don't Mean a Thing" and "Come Rain or Come Shine," as well as good original compositions, this winds up being little more than average Corea. It's adequate for casual fans looking for nothing more than pleasant music, but there are far better collections of Corea that present him either in a more challenging or welcoming mood, depending on your tastes.
