Chick Corea & Samba Song

Another amazingly good track from Friends (1978). With a great photo gallery of all the musicians, thanks to Youtube compiler Pampa777.

Chick Corea (piano), Joe Farrell (sax), Eddie Gomez (bass), Steve Gadd (drums). I haven’t followed Steve Gadd that much, but his drumming smokes all the way through this track, and especially from 8:15. Also, there’s some brilliant bass playing by Gomez from 4:49. I only know Eddie Gomez from his work with Bill Evans; subsequent work was a blank for me until I bumped into this album.

I don’t know why they had to give such a fantastic album such a dorky cover . . .
