|Chick Corea chronology|
The Song of Singing is Chick Corea's fifth solo recording, released in 1970.
The album features a trio with Barry Altschul on drums and Dave Holland on bass (together with Corea making up three fourths of Circle). The setting of the album is free and spontaneous with a few scripted pieces to keep everything on track. The lone piece composed by someone not in the band, Wayne Shorter's Nefertiti is now considered a jazz standard.
