Five Peace Band

Grammy® Winner! Five Peace Band Live took home the statue for Best Jazz Instrumental Album at the 52nd Grammy Awards.

Chick Corea and his Miles Davis band (In a Silent Way, Bitches Brew) cohort John McLaughlin put together an unbelievable combination of electric and acoustic jazz, from the full-on odyssey of Chick’s “Hymn to Andromeda” to the electric prowl of John’s “Senor C.S.”

Forty years after Miles Davis’ band, they’ve got one of the most impressive jazz quintets in recent memory:

  • Chick Corea (keyboards)
  • John McLaughlin (guitar)
  • Christian McBride (bass)
  • Kenny Garrett (alto sax)
  • Vinnie Colaiuta (drums)

“Jazz without compromise, invention without fear.” — The New Zealand Herald

“The sound was familiar – that irresistible driving funk, capable of rising to ecstatic heights. Everything they played … was touched with the same magic.” — The Daily Telegraph (London)
