You know the greatness of a musician’s gifts when they can walk away from one top-notch band and form another.

Jazz and fusion keyboard giant Chick Corea has done that.  When his band Return To Forever ran its course, he put together another formidable outfit in the Elektric Band.

Don’t try comparing RTF to the Elektric Band, or vice versa.  They’re two different animals.  When you can bring in players like Victor Wooten, Frank Gambale, Dave Weckl, Eric Marienthal, John Patitucci, Scott Henderson, Carlos Rios, and Jamie Glaser, just to name a few, that’s an impressive feat.

Leave it to someone like Chick Corea to do it.
