Chick Corea & John McLaughlin - Five Peace Band - Live at Chicago Theatre, Chicago, Illinois, USA, April 3rd, 2009 [2CD][FLAC]

An excellent sounding show. The first using my new recorder. There are a few minor flaws, caused mostly by me trying to re-adjust my croakie mics under my collar. I'm sure no one is going to mind. Overall, the recording quality turned out beyond my expectations. This had a lot to do with the audience acting accordingly, by refraining from chatter for the most part.
As for the performance, besides outstanding solos from everyone, I think the band seems a little less aggressive with Brian Blade. As much as I love his playing with Wayne Shorter, I would've preferred Vinnie Colaiuta. Another disappointment, though a very minor one, was the unbelievably short version of "In A Silent Way", an absolute highlight from the live CD. But after almost 2.5 hours of playing, I imagine the guys were tired. Overall, an unbelievable once-in-a-lifetime concert experience, no fusion fan should've missed...Enjoy!!!

Hi Dr. Fusion,

Goed je weer in volle actie te treffen. Fantastische posts (zoals altijd).
Helaas ben ik wat Mahavishnu en McLaughlin opnames van je kwijt geraakt, dus hoop op meer re-posts...
Succes en veel dank.
Vriend in Fusion,

Hoi Jeroen,

Maak je geen zorgen. Als ik ergens veel van heb dan is het wel van John McLaughlin :-)

Stay tuned my friend!
