Chick Corea and John McLaughlin

Five Peace Band

Five Peace Band
Chick Corea and John McLaughlin are back on stage together! Forty years after their historic sessions with Miles Davis, they’ve assembled one of the most impressive jazz quintets in recent memory:

— Chick Corea, keyboards
— John McLaughlin, guitar
— Christian McBride, bass
— Kenny Garrett, alto sax
— Vinnie Colaiuta, drums

The masters behind Return to Forever and the Mahavishnu Orchestra are ready to test the limits of electric music again. The double-album Five Peace Band Live captures the band on its European tour, pushing at the edges of plugged-in jazz. International praise for the live show was universal:

Recorded during their European tour last fall (2008), Five Peace Band Live features Corea and McLaughlin’s inspired duets as well as all five members negotiating the twists and turns of the compositions. The recording includes Vinnie Colaiuta – drums, Kenny Garrett – saxophone, Christian McBride – acoustic & electric basses, and Herbie Hancock special guests on the track “In a Silent Way / It’s About That Time.” The double-disc CD was initially made available early at performance venues as well as via the band’s website (www.fivepeaceband.com)...
