Chick Corea Elektric and Akoustic Band - How Were They Recorded?
 
I'm wondering if anybody knows whether the aforementioned Chick Corea bands tended to record their albums live, or tracked.

By live, I mean they played the track as a whole as a band in the studio. By tracked, I mean the parts were recorded individually and compiled as per a normal studio album.

Thanks.

I have his Elektric Band, Inside Out, and it was recorded at Mad Hatter studios, Los Angeles. Photos seem to show them all together. Hope that helps.

Interesting, thanks. Does it look like an actual shot of them in the studio, or like a promo shot?

Hmmm-- pretty sure Akoustic band was recorded live, Elektric band may have been tracked, or maybe there were just some synth overdubs, + maybe solos. I was present at Mad Hatter when Patitucci was recording one of his solo records a couple of years later, and maybe they were doing a similar process. The only players I remember being there were Patitucci, Weckl, and Kirk Whalum. I think P and W were doing the rhythm tracks, and maybe Whalum was providing a scratch part.

Shots in a studio with a lot of gear about
