We smuggled some video footage out of the first Chick Corea Elektric Band rehearsal of 2016! These guys have been through the trenches together — but put them in a studio, and you'd think they were teenagers. Right out of the gate, they deliver technical perfection and passion — the music sparkles. Tour starts TOMORROW in LA!
