New York, NY (February 10, 2009)—Originally formed in 1972, Return To Forever are a musical powerhouse. Thirty-two years after the release of their last album Romantic Warrior, keyboardist Chick Corea, bassist Stanley Clarke, guitarist Al Di Meola, and drummer Lenny White decided to give it another go. The result is Returns, a double-disc masterpiece to be released on March 17 by Eagle Rock Entertainment [pre-book date February 25, retail sales price $19.98].

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.

Eagle Rock Entertainment develops, acquires and produces music programming for a wide range of notable and high profile artists, which the company distributes on a worldwide basis. Eagle Rock Entertainment, Eagle Vision and Eagle Eye Media are wholly owned divisions of Eagle Rock Group, LTD.

Track listing:
Disc 1:
1.) Opening Prayer
2.) Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy
3.) Vulcan Worlds
4.) The Sorceress
5.) Song To The Pharaoh Kings

Disc 2:
1.) No Mystery
2.) The Romantic Warrior
3.) Duel Of The Jester And The Tyrant

Lenny White was recently asked about the Return to Forever DVD and he said it would be out
around June. The Return to Forever show I saw at Bank of America Pavilion in Boston last year
was one for the ages. They were BURNIN' IT UP!!! A man's band indeed.

Thanks, Isaac!!! This is great news! Was lucky to see these guys back in the 70's and very disappointed to miss them last year ... maybe this will soothe my disappointed heart. (Brock, you are correct - Stanley Clarke rules!!! And he's a nice guy, too!)

On the RTF there's a mention of a DVD.

Wonder when that's coming out?

Y'all might want to check out Corea and John McLaughlin's new band. I'm seeing them 3-29.

Oops, sorry. I saw later that the question had been asked and answered.

Sweet
Chick's from Boston -- one of the greats, & that new band w/John McLaughlin sounds Real Nice -- RTF, one of the real pioneering (in a way) fusion bands
