Corea and mates together again

MONTREAL - The jungle telegraph had been beating out the buzz for years that Return To Forever, the ultimate jazz fusion band of the 1970s, was considering a reunion.

Founded by keyboardist Chick Corea, the quartet featuring guitarist Al Di Meola, bassist Stanley Clarke and drummer Lenny White defined the fusion genre with passionate, anthemic arrangements played loud and fast.

Return To Forever made a huge imprint on a generation of jazz-rock fans before it disbanded in 1977.
