Chick Corea & Gary Burton: 'Hot House'

Commemorating the 40th anniversary since the release of their groundbreaking Crystal Silence, pianist Chick Corea and vibraphonist Gary Burton hit the studio again for their 6th joint-release. After four decades of sporadic touring and recording together, there's no questioning the fluency of the pair's interplay or their individual virtuosity; however, there's something lacking in Hot House. Perhaps it's the rather uninspired song selection or, more likely, that the two just have little left to say to each other after all these years. Though perfectly pleasant, Hot House is a lightweight offering considering the gravity of these artists.
