Chick Corea attained iconic status in music. The late keyboardist, composer and bandleader was a DownBeat Hall of Famer and NEA Jazz Master, as well as one of the most nominated artists in GRAMMY Awards history with 68 nods – and 24 wins, in addition to 4 Latin GRAMMYS. From straight-ahead to avant-garde, bebop to jazz-rock fusion, children’s songs to chamber and symphonic works, Chick touched an astonishing number of musical bases in his career after playing with the genre-shattering bands of Miles Davis in the late ’60s and early ’70s.
The latest addition to Chick Corea’s remarkable discography is Chick Corea Akoustic Band LIVE, the long-anticipated reunion of his beloved Akoustic Band with bassist John Patitucci and drummer Dave Weckl, together as a trio for the first time in more than two decades.
Under any circumstances, these thrilling live recordings would be a welcome addition to Corea’s prodigious discography. With the news of his passing still so fresh in listeners’ minds, its release comes as an opportunity for fans to bid farewell while cherishing the communal energy and playful vigor that made the pianist a favorite of jazz lovers around the world for nearly 60 years.
Chick Corea Akoustic Band LIVE, the 2-CD/3-LP set was recorded January 13, 2018 at SPC Music Hall in St. Petersburg, Florida. The trio’s intricate interplay and highwire jousting reflects more than 30 years of collaboration between Corea’s Akoustic and Elektric Bands and serves as a celebratory reminder of Corea’s singular genius, with more than two hours of inspired playing and spirited camaraderie.

NEW & SEALED VINYL
All of our products are brand new and sealed direct from the distributors warehouse. We work with over 15 distributors worldwide and this is exactly how we manage to get such awesome titles at awesome prices and usually ahead of schedule!
It is really important to keep in mind that, although the records are new and sealed they sometimes have 3 or 4 ports of call before they make it to us and then you. The manufacturer, the distributor, customs, our warehouse and then out to you. This does mean that, from time to time, albeit very rarely, some records (particularly the covers) will have slight deficiencies such as small creases, split seams, corner scuffs etc. This is normal and part of the process and are generally considered ‘superficial transit wear’.
We are an online business so our records aren’t getting flicked through and/or tossed around daily. We store our merchandise in a temperature controlled warehouse and always handle and package them with great care to ensure you receive them in as good condition as possible.
Should you choose to shop with us, we ask for your understanding of this process and realise that ‘new and sealed’ doesn’t mean ‘straight off the production line’. If you are an avid collector and are looking for an absolutely pristine copy, please just email us first and we would be more than happy to provide info/photos of the item.
