Review by Kazuhiro
3 stars The appearance of CCEB became a band that indeed showed new directionality in Jazz/Fusion. The idea of Corea created in the route besides RTF has succeeded in the realization of the band with an exactly electronic element.

Width was given to the music character of CCEB by taking an acoustic element to the index on which CCEB had worked till then in "Eye of the beholder" of the former work.

Five ensemble's that wove becoming a perfect element whenever the work was announced and answering the idea of Corea resulted exactly.

Musicians who form CCEB are expressing it in the work attended with a certain kind of order and the purpose. The music character that Corea expressed in this band is in the flow with the relation between two items with an acoustic element. Therefore, either answer is not found to this relation but a past direction is guessed to have executed the expression that turns well method as a pair.

[**] did evolution and the revolution to directionality and ensemble of the band for the content of the former work. It is that follows former Composition's flow and gives the impression that flows indeed to the last minute.. finished in this album. And, this a certain kind of flow shows the element sharpened further. It has been succeeded by "Beneath The Mask".

CCEB never never showed the same face in the work. The complex rhythm and ensemble are the performances that only they can do. The quality of the performance goes up obviously compared with a past work of CCEB.

Stevie Wonder that had appeared suddenly when "Inside Out" of the tune collected to this work was made never participated in the recording. However, the music that CCEB did has obviously exerted some influences in the kingdom of music.

It is ..flow that expands the content of 1st album further.. finished as a flow the overall the work. However, the idea on which it works by "Eye Of The Beholder" has digested surely by them and has given the tune width.

4 stars This is fourth Corea's Elektric Band album. It's interesting, that between third and fourth albums,in 1989, Corea released album with Acoustic Band. So, even if first introduction of some acoustic sound was started still in CCEB third album, fourth is next step in that direction.

I think, previous ( Acoustic Band) album made his importance for the music of "Inside Out" as well. So, we have here much warmer music, than in CCEB first albums. And in fact it's more jazz than fusion. But good jazz!

It's not a Corea's return to post-bop, but next step to creative jazz of 90-th! I believe, that this album is the best CCEB starting from very beginning. The only problem could be for listeners there isn't too much fusion, but modern jazz.

3 stars Inside out is an interesting album, the band's name is Elektric Band but Corea mainly uses piano. He does it very well - that's his strongest ability, after all. Piano playing is brilliant and caught up by no less virtuoso drums, bass and guitar - listen to "Make a wish Part 2" which is a prett ... (read more)
