We live in an age of remakes, in music no less than in movies and fashion. But why should master musicians Corea and Burton tackle the same repertoire all over again almost a quarter century after the original? Sure it makes sense to play it live in front of new audiences. But recording a new version of "Señor Mouse," which opened the first Crystal Silence album (on ECM) with a magic of its own, doesn't really seem appropriate. There is virtuosity in this remake, of course: "virtuosity" could be Corea's and Burton's middle name. But where is the freshness and where are the nuances in this new 9-minute version?
