The word has long been out and the reunion tour of the Return to Forever group, one of the standard bearers of the jazz-rock fusion movement of the 1970s, is well on its way. Intricate, emotive and--yes--loud music that hasn't really been heard from the band in some 32 years, is being played and enjoyed live once again. With great vigor, to say the least. The tour started on the U.S. West Coast, careened through Canada, and will take off to several countries in Europe before returning to the U.S., ending in New York City in August.
AAJ contributor R.J DeLuke spoke with all four members of the classic RTF line-up--keyboardist Chick Corea, guitarist Al Di Meola, bassist Stanley Clarke and drummer Lenny White, for a round table discussion of the group's past, present...and possible future.
