Looking (Berlin Version) Corona is a live album featuring performances by Cecil Taylor with Harald Kimmig, Muneer Abdul Fataah, William Parker and Tony Oxley recorded in Berlin on November 3 & 4, 1989 and released on the FMP label.[2]

The Allmusic review by Brian Olewnick states "Recorded a couple of days after the similarly titled solo piano performance also released on FMP, Looking (Berlin Version) Corona is a fine quintet concert, notable for the relatively unusual (for Taylor) instrumental grouping employed... There's an enormous number of recordings from Taylor in the late '80s (much of it on FMP) and, while this may not rank at the very top of even that batch, it's a quite enjoyable release and one that the serious aficionado will want to hear".[3]
