Chick Corea Elektric Band

24 June 2017 / 19:30
A rare opportunity to catch the classic line-up of one of the signature fusion bands in contemporary Jazz, with the keyboard maestro joined by saxophonist Eric Marienthal, guitarist Frank Gambale, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Dave Weckl.

No stranger to taking Jazz to unexpected places, Corea’s Elektric Band combines the playful experimentation of his pure Jazz projects with Rock and Funk sounds. An unstoppable unit live, the band navigate songs with an almost impossible dexterity – blistering guitar work, saxophone blasts and Corea’s neon sythnesizer underpinned by lithe bass and drums so powerful and precise that it’s hard to believe they’re played by a real human and not a machine.
