About this show

Return to Forever IV, the legendary jazz fusion band led by 16-time Grammy Award-winner Chick Corea, reveals a new lineup on their full-scale U.S. summer tour. Consisting of core members Corea (keys), Stanley Clarke (bass) and Lenny White (drums), along with Mahavishnu Orchestra alum and violin virtuoso Jean-Luc Ponty and guitarist Frank Gambale, these five pillars of jazz will bring a re-imagined musical dimension to their classic repertoire. Their ever-evolving set list encompasses an amalgam of Return to Forever classics, highlights from each member's solo repertoire and brand-new compositions written for the Return to Forever IV lineup. Zappa Plays Zappa, the musical tribute to Frank Zappa founded by Zappa's son Dweezil Zappa, will open. Dweezil, a 2009 Grammy Award-winner, founded the group Zappa Plays Zappa to bring the music of his late father to contemporary audiences through a series of international performance tours dubbed "Tour de Frank."
