"Chick Corea's best music is decidedly his acoustic setups, and the Akoustic Band, in my opinion, is the best out of those.

I don't think anyone denies that Corea is probably the most technically accomplished jazz pianist alive today. His unique harmonic language is instantly recognizable and he can play with a speed and energy unmatched among pianists.

This CD is half his take on jazz standards, and half originals. A must-buy for jazz fans and neophytes alike."

"I bought this CD immediately when it was released in 1989. I cannot count how many times this has been played. Last night I opened the jewel case and found the CD had somehow been snapped in half. This morning I'm on amazon looking for a replacement. That alone should tell you how good this CD really is.

The jazz/fusion aficionado would be hard pressed to find three more accomplished musicians than Chick Corea, John Pattatuci and Dave Weckl. The performances are legendary, and the feel is very Electrik band meets acoustic instruments. This is not a straight forward jazz trio ala oscar peterson or something of that nature. This is jazz that pushes the envelope using classic instruments.

It doesn't surprise me one bit that this CD is still in print, it's simply a class. I personally prefer it to "Alive" so if you were looking to pick one, I'd go with this one.
