Akoustic Band is a 1989 album by Chick Corea's Akoustic Band, featuring Chick Corea with John Patitucci and Dave Weckl.

The Allmusic review by Daniel Gioffre states: "After recording a string of fusion records in the late '80s with his 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."[2]
