There didn't seem to be one already, and from what I've heard of him he seems pretty good.

Anybody got any album recommendations?

Crystal Silence, with Gary Burton, is my favorite.

I love his album with Bela Fleck.

yeah, Spain is one hell of a song!

He is pretty incredible. I don't have any of his stuff but I really wanted to get his album with Bela Fleck. I really should get that...

yeah I really don't know about Chick Corea's more recent work - I think he should **** the Scientology crap and make some real honest music like he used to before. I think I'm one of the few people who don't like any of Chick Corea's electric projects (save his work with Miles Davis' Bitches Brew) - I never got the whole thing that he tried doing with RTF or the Electric Band.

Apart from Crystal Silence which Resi mentioned, I would highly recommend his 1968 album "Now he Sings, Now he Sobs" with Miroslav Vituous on bass and Roy Haynes on drums. Now that's what I want to hear from Chick Corea.
