"Tones for Joan's Bones" is the debut album by American jazz pianist Chick Corea. It features four long tracks and was originally released in 1968 on Vortex Records.
The album is rare in its original form, and is more commonly found in compilation with Miroslav Vitouš' album Mountain in the Clouds. Two tracks, "Tones for Joan's Bones" and "This Is New", were included on the Atlantic compilation Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, McCoy Tyner. The whole album was also released in the two-LP set Inner Space in the early 1970s. The CD reissue of Inner Space, however, omits the second and the third track due to time limitations.
The title track, "Tones for Joan's Bones", was first recorded in studio a few days before the recording date of this album, more precisely on November 17, 1966, and it was included on Blue Mitchell's Boss Horn.
