Friends is an album by Chick Corea. The quartet of Corea, Joe Farrell on reeds, Eddie Gómez on double bass, and Steve Gadd on drums recorded the album in 1978. It was released by Polydor Records and the cover featured the Smurfs. Friends received the 1979 Grammy award for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, Group. All pieces are composed by Chick Corea. The One Step 6:05. Waltse for Dave 7:32. Children's Song No. Chick Corea. An aptly titled album, Friends finds Chick in a beautifully relaxed setting with three jazz luminaries: Joe Farrell Chicks Return to Forever partner, Eddie Gomez longtime Bill Evans bassist and Steve Gadd one of Chicks favorite drummers. The mood might be relaxed, but the music is anything but laid-back: the quartet digs deep on eight of Chicks originals, including the revelatory Samba Song and the supremely swinging The One Step.
