Five Peace Band

Chick Corea and John McLaughlin are truly kindred spirits. Both are brave musical explorers and singular virtuosos on their respective instruments. As young jazz artists, they both did stints with the legendary Miles Davis and appeared together on the groundbreaking jazz/rock/funk classic Bitches Brew. Each later ventured out to form his own revolutionary band: McLaughlin’s Mahavishnu Orchestra and Corea’s Return to Forever. The innovative music played by these two groups attracted huge audiences in the ‘70s and helped shape a new genre of music, turning multitudes of rock fans on to a new form of jazz. Since then they have both had extraordinarily prolific careers, with continual creative output spanning many genres of music and in a host of different musical settings, while maintaining unparalleled artistic integrity

From the psychedelic cover art to the expansive and innovative playing, Five Peace Band Live is a throwback to the great live albums Miles Davis made in the late-1960s-1970s, with some of the same musicians. Chick Corea and John McLaughlin actually met in 1969 during the recording sessions that would become the classic fusion albums In ...

Christian McBride: Getting the Inside Straight

Read "Christian McBride: Getting the Inside Straight" reviewed by Esther Berlanga-Ryan

The way it developed through the years and its constant ignition-like energy; the creativity of those who lead the way and those who continue the journey today; the improvisation that takes over ...

Chick Corea / John McLaughlin: Five Peace Band Live

Read "Five Peace Band Live" reviewed by John Kelman


Superstar collaborations often look good on paper but don't pan out in reality, so it's a real pleasure to see that the pairing of two modern legends--keyboardist Chick Corea and guitarist John McLaughlin--is far more than some marketing representative's wet dream. Teaming with three younger players who add their own cachet--saxophonist Kenny Garrett, bassist Christian McBride ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
