Lenny White Returns With Return to Forever

Return to Forever—one of fusion’s iconic, most influential groups—is getting back together for a U.S. tour this summer. Mid-’70s lineup, dudes! Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola, and drummer Lenny White. All four musicians have kept ridiculously busy since RTF disbanded in 1978, and it never quite seemed like they would play together as that band again. White says:

We had gone through so many questions…of people asking, “When is it going to happen?” and it would get to a certain point and it wouldn’t go any further. Then things began to change, and people started listening to different kinds of music—to the point where I just said, Man, I just don’t think it is going to happen.” But then we started talking. And I felt that maybe the time had finally become right musically for something like this to happen.

Hey, musically “right” or not, we are jazzed (and fusioned) and are getting in line now to be ass raped by Ticketmaster. Until then:
