Chick Corea was 27 years old when he released his second album, Now He Sings, Now He Sobs, in 1968. It was originally released on Solid State, a small and short-lived New York-based label that was co-founded, in 1966, by producer Sonny Lester, together with recording engineer Phil Ramone (who would go on to become a Grammy-winning producer) and arranger Manny Albam. Solid State’s parent company happened to be Liberty, which had snapped up Blue Note in 1966 when its co-founder, Alfred Lion, decided to retire and sell the company. Since the 70s, Solid State’s repertoire has been looked after by Alfred Lion’s old label, which is why Now He Sings, Now He Sobs has been reissued on vinyl as part of Blue Note’s Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Series.
