Five Peace Band Live is a 2009 post bop and jazz fusion album from musicians Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Kenny Garrett, Christian McBride and Vinnie Colaiuta.
The album was very well received, winning the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album.
John Kelman in his AllAboutJazz review said “Running the gamut from straight-ahead to balls-out fusion, Five Peace Band Live is a rare opportunity to hear two masters create something that references both of their careers but combines to create something with its own distinct personality.”
“Five Peace Band re-creates an extremely ambitious and beautifully executed gig, where all players were firing on all cylinders.” – Thom Jurek/AllMusic.
