Return To Forever Return With New Album
Recorded during their successful 2008 tour, this CD marks their first tour in 25 years. Returns is exactly what the title states – a return to form by a conglomerate of all-star musicians. This live set is Jazz/Rock fusion at its finest, from an act that was at the forefront of this eclectic scene alongside contemporaries Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Formerly a pianist for Miles Davis, Corea formed the band that enjoyed commercial success with a string of albums in the mid-seventies.
The opening track, "Opening Prayer", is electric, and sets the tone for one out-of-this-world show. Throughout this 2CD set, each musician shines. Corea deftly traverses the range of his keys, embellished by unparalleled guitar work of Di Meola. Clarke explores his bass, at times taking it on wild lyrical excursions, while White's swinging beat keeps the control underneath the other member's musical chaos. Returns stands as a beacon of what happens when great musicians collaborate to bring magic to the stage.
