We are on abit of a Jazz Fusion kick here on Rock Revival (our fusion show was last night on Triple H FM, Sudney) and I have neglected to post the most important news of the year, the Reunion of one of the best fusion bands of the 70's, Return to Forever.
Return to Forever consisted of Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola and Lenny White, four of the most influential artists in Jazz.
They are currently touring Europe and the US featuring the classic music from their four chart-topping albums.
"In retrospect, the '70s were a very powerful time in instrumental music," Stanley Clarke
"We’re going to go out and play our music as honestly as we did then, and it will be a great thing for all of us."
A special Return to Forever anthology featuring remixed and remastered tracks from the classic albums 'Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy', 'Where Have I Known You Before', 'No Mystery' and 'Romantic Warrior' has been released to coincide with the tour.
Al Di Meola says, "This is something we’ve talked about for close to 30 years... how’s that? 30 years! We’ve come close a few times, but finally the timing was right."
"We all felt the time was right to come back on a grand scale, raise the bar again and show people what serious music is really about," Lenny White concludes.
