A Mesmerizing Album
albertus | Houston, TX USA | 07/27/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chick Corea's "The Mad Hatter" is probably one of his best albums. Some of the songs are strange but the jazzy parts are indeed excellent. Welcome are the vocals of Gale Moran and the performances of other collaborators (Herbie Hancock might be in this album but I'm not sure). Note the use of strings, percussions, and vocals in all the songs, not to mention earlier generation synthesizers.

One peculiar song that amuses me is "Tweedle Dee". It has a delightful but strange melody with a haunting vocal. The song is followed by a very jazzy "Humpty Dumpty".

I got the CD back in 1993. The CD was a German release. This time, a Japanese release is available and on sale on this site."

"A few weeks ago I loaded some discs in the carousel, while I waited for my three brothers to arrive at my home, I chose two recordings with corea as a "side man",and the other one with him as the leader. While listening to the track spain from the priceless jazz collection on verve, I found my eyes welling up with admiration and sorrow, in that knowing the unfortunate reality that someone could be that talented, and for the most part, unknown in the world, outside of our community.As for the release,The mad hatter,all of the recordings from this period of the 1970's, were listened to often and loudly during my junior high and high school years, by my best friend and I , and they bring many fond memories.I RECOMMEND ALL THE CHICK COREA DATES FROM THE 1970'S SECRETDOMINO"
