Founded in 1986, The Chick Corea Elektric Band has long held a high standard, with Eric Marienthal on saxophones, Frank Gambale on guitar, John Patitucci on electric bass, and Dave Weckl on drums. It’s the ensemble with whom brilliant keyboardist, Chick Corea, (pioneer of the genre since the creation of the band Return to Forever in 1972) has been able to experiment with writing jazz fusion the most – both in its grooves, and its sonic textures. After changing the group’s makeup several times and reforming the initial group around the 2000s (see To the Stars released in 2004), Corea led this all-star lineup for his last major “electric” tours, between 2016 and 2018 (before his death in February 2021 from cancer). This album The Future Is Now gives us the opportunity to hear unreleased excerpts from his final tour.


Featuring long and epic performances of some of Corea’s biggest hits, while leaving plenty of room for individual improvisation, the Chick Corea Elektric Band appears here at its best and most seductive. Their organic cohesion, resulting from their collective arrangements that are as sophisticated as they are effective, is balanced with luxurious instrumental virtuosity constantly going beyond the framework of the original songs. The group offers two long hours of consistently lyrical and accessible music, released here for the first time ever. © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz
