To prepare for the 21st century, Chick formed Origin, whose members were not yet born when he first arrived in New York. All grew up on Chick's music and all have a flair for navigating the Spanish, South American and Cuban styles that Chick calls his spiritual home base. During three years of constant activity, Chick composed a formidable body of music for them to play featuring an array of rhythmic gambits crisp strings of eighth and sixteenth notes, rubato orchestral voicings, montunos. Bassist Avishai Cohen and Drummer Jeff Ballard are on top of him like white on rice. They don't just play the music they become it. Using a three-horn front line Steve Davis on trombone and Tim Garland and Steve Wilson on woodwind instruments Chick finds the appropriate textures for the lovely, floating rhythms and arching melody of Armando's Tango, a song dedicated to his father.
