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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
