Akoustic Band is a 1989 jazz album by the Chick Corea Akoustic Band, featuring Chick Corea with John Patitucci and Dave Weckl. The group was nominated and received the 1990 Grammy Awardfor Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, Group at the 32nd Annual Grammy Awards. Allmusic awarded the album with 1.5 stars and its review by Daniel Gioffre states: "After recording a string of fusion records in the late '80s with his Chick Corea Elektric Band, Chick Corea returned to acoustic jazz with this trio date. Enlisting Elektric Band sidemen John Patitucci and Dave Weckl, Corea swings through ten tracks with noticeably mixed results. The leader is as romantic as ever, playing with bravado even on ballads, flawlessly executing complicated ideas, reveling in drama and melodrama.
