The Complete "IS" Sessions" (Connoisseur Series) is a 2 CD set. In May 1969, at the height of his involvement with Miles Davis, Corea recorded these adventurous sessions, playing both acoustic and electric piano (often on the same track). From quartets by Bennie Maupin, Chick, Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette to full-blown septet tracks with Woody Shaw, Hubert Laws and Horace Arnold added, the music covers cutting-edge contemporary tunes like "This" and "Song Of The Wind" and experimental free improvisations like "Is". A unique chapter is the recorded history of the artist. Several alternate takes have been added to this title.
