Chick Corea’s Akoustic Band

 

Tokyo, Japan, 1992

Chick Corea’s “Akoustic Band” appear live at the Blue Note in Tokyo, Japan in 1992.

Personnel:

Chick Corea, keyboard
John Patitucci, bass
Vinnie Colaiuta, drums

Winners of a 1990 Grammy for “Best Jazz Instrumental Performance”, Chick Corea’s “Akoustic Band” originally included drummer David Weckl.

Following this achievement some critics would remark that the group was at its strongest when dealing with Corea’s original works and not the standards featured on their earlier albums.
