BBC Review

Here's a magnificent souvenir of a momentous occasion: the first band-based collaboration between jazz giants John McLaughlin and Chick Corea in more than 40 years since they first met and played together as sidemen to the mighty Miles Davis during his Bitches' Brew period.

Caught live on the closing night of the 2008 London Jazz Festival, this double-disc set sees the pair team up with Kenny Garrett on sax, bassist Christian McBride and Vinnie Colaiuta on drums - collectively calling themselves Five Peace Band.

Corea said he wanted 'a new, fresh sound' for the band, and in its exuberant blend of intricately accomplished improvisations, classics drawn from his own and McLaughlin's back catalogues (and more than a nod to Davis and fusion pioneer Joe Zwainful), the end result certainly delivers that, and how.

The emphasis is on the ensemble work throughout, although intimate duets between Corea, pert and poetic at the keyboard, and McLaughlin on measuredly mellow electric guitar add their own indelibly lyrical and free-flowing stamps to proceedings.

For all the phenomenal pyrotechnics of the endlessly combustible - and ultimately somewhat exhausting - first disc, it's the more considered, less obviously flamboyant offerings on the second CD that sound less like barnstorming, grandstanding displays of technical prowess and more like attempts to explore musical nuance and emotional subtlety.

Where the cover of the late Jackie McLean's Dr Jackle begins with dreamy, disengaged doodling it soon shifts into rapid, laser-accurate reciprocity between the band that reaches spectacular heights of invention on Corea's own newly composed half-hour-long extravaganza Hymn To Andromeda.

The set's only medley launches with McLaughlin's own In A Silent Way before Herbie Hancock turns up to guest on It's About That Time, with the album closer an extended improvisation on Someday My Prince Will Come by Corea and McLaughlin that touches on both the tweely sentimental and the genuinely ecstatic.

A memorable document of a remarkable partnership. It's not altogether perfect, but even its imperfections showcase musicianship of an all too rare and wholly relishable invention. --Michael Quinn

Three Miles alumni, plus a fourth on one track, assemble to jam together. How much more perfect does it get, especially, from my point of view, one of them is John McLaughlin? The guitarist and his celebrated partner on keyboards, Chick Corea, are coy in their liner notes about the style of music showcased - "New Form" is as close as we get - perhaps taking their lead from their former leader - Miles was notoriously prickly about labels - but we can say that there are very clear influences in play: jazz, Eastern, fusion, flamenco.

Two McLaughlin pieces are the most incendiary of the collection, Señor CS and, especially, Raju, which sprints along with no pause for breath whatsoever. Some of the other tracks are more contemplative, and kind of tiptoe in, as with Hymn To Andromeda, which begins with Corea's piano accompanied only by McBride on bass for the first eight minutes, at which time they are joined by McLaughlin, but still in very subdued tones. At 12 minutes the drums finally give a little kick, shortly afterwards Garrett joins, sounding slightly Middle Eastern, and the pace begins to gather.

As with all the tracks, but this one particularly, the band give themselves plenty of room - 27 minutes in this case - to extemporise. On Dr Jackle they also drop in plenty of references to the greats - Miles, Monk, Bird.

The most significant tribute though is In A Silent Way/It's About That Time, which features Herbie Hancock. Zawinul and Davis's landmark composition is introduced in recognisable form, McLaughlin's guitar evocatively conjuring up a taste of the original.

Format: Audio CD
Chick Corea and John McLaughlin made musical history when they played on Miles
Davis' landmark albums "In A Silent Way" and "Bitches Brew". Here these two musical legends have united to play some stunning and expressive Music that truly defies any definition, though words like jazz and fusion might be appropriate.

This is really not Mahavishnu Orchestra meets Return To Forever, and it's certainly not a contest in who can play most notes pr. second. Instead it's visonary and creative unfoldments of Here and Now. The very long tracks brimming with intelligent improvisations are mostly of newer date with Mclaughlin's three contributions taken from recent albums "Industrial Zen" and "Floating Point". Corea also delves into recent compositions. We get a jazzstandard, some blues and a medley of Joe Zawinul's "In A Silent Way" and Miles Davis' "It's About That Time" with a brilliant guestspot by Herbie Hancock.

Mclaughlin, who plays clean jazzfusionguitar - no laptop no guitarsynth to the delight of more orthodox fans - and Corea have rarely sounded better than here, clearly inspiring each other to reach for the heights and depths. Supplemented by the great saxplayer Kenny Garrett who matches the intensity and virtuosity of the bandleaders. Christian McBride playing stunningly on both acoustic and electric bass, driving the music with fine jazzy lines and delivering some blistering solos. While drumlegend Vinnie Colaiuta anchors the proceedings in expert style.

An instant classic!

This is straight jazz fusion music. It does exactly what is says on the label. It has keyboards, guitar, sax, bass and drums (what else do you need?)The music is played very well by top class musicians and they seen to be thoroughly enjoying themselves. This comes across strongly in the music they are playing together. They are well... just jamming. the proof is in the music 20 min or so per track. Some of the tracks are a little less good, but having 100min of great live jazz fusion music in 2 hours is fine. John Mclaughlin is not trying to re-create his glory 1970's and Chick Corea has never sounded this good since his 1970's glory years. They are also not trying to outdo each other which is important (they would have a few years ago). They seem just to want to enjoy playing music together. This comes across and it is refreshing. Buy it you need it in your collection!

If you don't already like this sort of music, then this probably isn't the album that will convert you. On the other hand, if you're already a fan of jazz-fusion then you'll want this. The main reason will be because the live recording manages to capture the concert feeling where the musicians can really explore the grooves. OK some might accuse them of going on too long, but I like it. Listen to it all for the concert experience or just one or two tracks at a time.

The other reviews on here give a pretty fair impression of the music you'll find. Just one personal comment - this proves yet again that bending a note on a guitar is a much more acceptable effect than trying to it on a synth or electric piano. Sorry, Chick!

Despite the appalling pun in the title, this cd delivers. I've always been a fan of Chick since seeing the original Return to Forevever band in Norwich decades ago. Virtuoso magnificence is not everyone's cup of tea (see the top ten), but I love it. McLaughlin's pretty good too & as I'm a would-be bass player I appreciate that Christian McBride is equally ridiculous on both electric & upright. He's the only bass player I have heard who can nail Jaco licks and solos perfectly on an upright.
