    I love Chick Corea's "Spain" but on the "Light as a Feather" version the drums are mixed way, way down.
    Do you know of a version where the drums are more prominent?

    There are a bunch of live performances on YouTube where the drums are present. This is not one of em but it has a sick bass solo so I figured I'd post it anyway :D

    Before Lenny White, Gadd was asked to be the drummer in RTF, he chose to stay in NY and be close to his family.

    Yeah, Bunny definitely tears that one up. But after Chick takes over the next couple of choruses I found myself thinking "Bunny definitely knows the changes...but Chick is the changes!"

    Look up the album Chick Corea Akoustic Band. Dave Weckl and John Patitucci join alongside Chick to record one of my long-time favorite renditions of the piece.
