Legendary Jazz Fusion Group Tours Globe

Chick Corea and Return to Forever take to the stage for the first time in 25 years, reuniting to tour the U.S., Europe and Canada, where they will appear in four cities.

One of the greatest jazz, rock fusion groups in music history, the innovative group were pioneers of the style that blends bold improvisation and hard-driving rhythms.

Return to Forever 2008 reunites keyboard/piano legend Chick Corea with guitarist Al Di Meola, bassist Stanley Clark and drummer Lenny White, each a legend in their own right and influencing generations of musicians with their cutting edge sound.

The RTF tour will include dates at major summer festivals in Montreux, Switzerland; San Sebastian, Spain, Nice France; Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; and the Montreal Jazz Festival.

Return to Forever founding members Corea and Clarke are also producing a double-CD anthology to coincide with the tour. The album includes remixed and remastered tracks from 1973-76, with such classic hits as Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy,Where Have I Known You Before, the Grammy-winning No Mystery and Romantic Warrior.
