Chick’s catalogue of classic Elektric and Akoustic Band albums is now available in digital format exclusively on this site! These are some of Chick’s most revered and influential albums with two of his most celebrated bands.
Light Years (Digital Download)
With the classic Elektric Band lineup in place — Chick, Eric Marienthal (saxophone), Frank Gambale (guitar), John Patitucci (bass) and Dave Weckl (drums) — Chick created a masterpiece of electric jazz: powerful, swinging grooves, passionate solos and virtuosic group interplay throughout. It was a defining moment in jazz, and Light Years is a high-water mark.
Eye of the Beholder (Digital Download)
During an era when the word “fusion” was applied to any mixture of jazz with pop or funk, Chick Corea’s Elektric Band reinforced the word’s original meaning: a combination of jazz improvisations with the power, rhythms and sound of rock. Eye of the Beholder, which found guitarist Frank Gambale, saxophonist Eric Marienthal and bassist John Patitucci displaying increasingly original solo voices, is one of this group’s finest recordings and ranks with the best fusion of the latter half of the 1980s. – AllMusic
Inside Out (Digital Download)
Deep into their collaboration, the Chick Corea Elektric Band takes on another bold set of compositions from Chick, including the ambitious “Tale of Daring” suite. Chick, Eric Marienthal (saxophone), Frank Gambale (guitar), John Patitucci (bass) and Dave Weckl (drums) are a stunning jazz unit, capable of deep, swinging grooves and nimble electric acrobatics. And they throw their all into Chick’s new tunes: the title cut serves as a lush, bracing intro to an endlessly pleasurable set, including the full-band workout on “Kicker.”
Beneath the Mask (Digital Download)
Beneath the Mask is the easiest and breeziest Elektric Band album in years, with Latin-flavored melodies that are concise and downright hummable. Corea’s atmospheric harmonies manage to be seductive without evaporating into nothingness. On “One of Us Is Over 40,” the band even slips into a very friendly (and uncharacteristically African) lope. Corea weaves his tricks into a seamless musical fabric. And the Elektric Band—Corea, bassist John Patitucci, drummer Dave Weckl, guitarist Frank Gambale, and saxophonist Eric Marienthal—has never sounded better. — Entertainment Weekly
The Chick Corea Elektric Band (Digital Download)
Chick launched a revolution with his Elektric Band, a plugged-in quintet like no other, before or since. And it all starts here: Chick on keyboards, Eric Marienthal on sax, Scott Henderson on guitar, John Patitucci on bass and Dave Weckl on drums make for an unstoppable combination. And to top it off, they've got a suite of all-original Corea compositions to play with. The result is an absolute classic of electric jazz, and one that defined the next decade of creative music, including six more albums from the Elektric Band itself.
Expressions (Digital Download)
The tireless Corea performs unaccompanied on this 14-tune collection of pop standards, jazz classics and originals, and it’s a delight to hear the sound of his piano unadorned. Though decidedly a modernist, Corea reveals his profound knowledge of the history of jazz piano: Bud Powell’s “Oblivion” is done a la Art Tatum, the evenness of his lines on “Someone to Watch Over Me” has a Teddy Wilson-like clarity, the swirls of color on “Stella by Starlight” recall the pastel palette of Bill Evans.
Time Warp (Digital Download)
Chick Corea features an acoustic quartet on this CD, performing a full set of original material. The performances by the group (which is comprised of Corea on piano, Bob Berg on tenor and soprano, bassist John Patitucci, and drummer Gary Novak) are excellent. The interplay between Corea and Patitucci is as impressive as ever, and Novak is alert to the constantly changing musical events. – AllMusic
