Chick Corea Elektric Band - Live From Elario's (the first gig) (CD)
LIVE FROM ELARIO'S (the first gig) - CD The Chick Corea Elektric Band
In 1985, the Chick Corea Elektric Band started out as a trio. Chick with a myriad of keyboards and John Patitucci on bass and Dave Weckl on drums. Chick was already a legend and John and Dave were the hottest new players on the scene.
"The Keyboard gear I used at Elario's was extensive including the massive Synclavier. I had the idea that I would "orchestrate" the music and still keep it a trio. I soon started adding more musicians to the band so I could concentrate on fewer chores while playing - until the Elektric Band was a quintet and I was down to a Fender Rhodes and a piano (Paint the World).
"There's some fine playing here from John and Dave plus I did have fun going through this experiment and think some listeners might enjoy what went down here."
