An evening with herbie hancock chick corea in concert

An Evening With Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea: In Concert is a live album recorded over the course of several live performances in February 1978 and released that same year as a double LP. The album features just Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea each playing acoustic piano. The use of only acoustic piano comes as a marked departure from both men's favoring of electric keyboards and a more jazz fusion style at the time. Herbie Hancock was credited with this album, while Chick Corea was credited with the album CoreaHancock, another recording from the concert tour with the two artists, released by Polydor.


On vinyl, "February Moment" and its introduction are indexed as one track. Moreover, the liner notes state that the fourth side of the album's sound had to be compressed to fit the 35 minutes of "Maiden Voyage" and "La Fiesta" on one side; this was done to preserve the integrity of the performance, and therefore contains a lower sound quality. The CD version avoids this issue.
