    Return To Forever - The Sorceress ~ Audio

    11:23

    Return To Forever were at the forefront of jazz/rock fusion in the seventies and like their contemporaries Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra were formed by a former Miles Davis sideman, in this case the great Chick Corea. Return To Forever hit their commercial and artistic peak with a string of albums in the mid-seventies featuring the line-up of Chick Corea on keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, Al Di Meola on guitar and Lenny White on drums. In 2008 this classic line-up reunited for their first tour in 25 years and proved that their musicianship and the chemistry within the band was as strong as ever. All of the members have longstanding connections with the Montreux Jazz Festival and a date there for the reformed band was always going to be a compulsory part of the European tour.

    No Mystery: Chick & Stanley Clarke Play Return to Forever Classic as Acoustic Duet

    7:29

    Return to Forever co-founders Chick Corea & Stanley Clarke play a duet of jazz-rock fusion classic No Mystery on acoustic piano and upright bass.

    Chick & Stanley originally recorded No Mystery with Lenny White on drums and Al Di Meola on guitar on Return to Forever's album of the same name. It's been a highlight of live setlists ever since.

    But hearing it as a duet — just acoustic piano and acoustic bass — is a revelation. Two masters of their instruments working at the highest level.

    Recorded during the educational masterclass hosted by Chick & Stanley Clarke in Jan. 2015. Watch the full session right now:

    Return to Forever - Vulcan Worlds

    Return to Forever performing the Stanley Clarke composition 'Vulcan Worlds' in Chicago, 1974. Some fun split-screen footage.

    Chick Corea - keyboards
    Al Di Meola - guitar
    Stanley Clarke - bass
    Lenny White - drums

    This performance (and the whole show - a double bill of RTF and Herbie Hancock's Headhunters) was produced by WTTW Chicacgo and distributed by PBS I believe. To the best of my research, this footage has never been commerically available to the general public in any home format. It's been circulating in bootleg trading circles for some years, where I obtained it. I'm sure many of us would love to have a proper DVD of these Soundstage shows! I will happily remove it at the request of the musicians or the copyright holders.

    Return To Forever - No Mystery

    6:11

    As a part of a Chick Corea series I will be posting, here is the album named track No Mystery. Musicians and critics alike rave about this experiemental album...I cannot even fathom why not to...

    In a Few Short Words:
    Return to Forever was a jazz fusion group founded and led by keyboardist Chick Corea. Through its existence, the band cycled through a number of different members, with the only consistent band mate of Corea's being bassist Stanley Clarke. Along with Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever is often cited as one of the core groups of the jazz-fusion movement of the 1970s. On this and the following album, each member of the group composed at least one of the tracks.The first side of the record consisted primarily of jazz-funk, while the second side featured Corea's acoustic title track and a long composition with a strong Spanish influence. No Mystery won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Performance by a Group. (Wikipedia) On this album the following artists are featured:
    Lenny White
    Stanely Clarke
    Chick Corea

    THE GRIFFITH PARK COLLECTION

    40:51

    This unique straight-ahead jazz project unites three core members of Return to Forever with post-bop horn heavyweights Freddie Hubbard and Joe Henderson. Stanley Clarke makes an unusual appearance on upright bass, and plays it well. Chick Corea and Lenny White round out the ensemble. The set is strictly acoustic, beginning and ending with two Lenny White tunes, the lively L's Bop and the somber, dramatic Guernica, respectively. Clarke contributes the catchy, mid-tempo blues Why Wait, while Corea gives us October Ballade and Hubbard dusts off his hard-bop classic Happy Times. Corea's trio featured on Steve Swallow's Remember breaks things up nicely.

    Chick Corea & Stanley Clarke Pt 1: The Story Behind Return to Forever’s Light as a Feather

    4:21

    The founding members of Return to Forever, keyboardist Chick Corea and bassist Stanley Clarke, recently hung out at Chick’s masterclass, video production studio – Mad Hatter Studios East. The occasion was to deliver a free online music workshop to musicians all over the world. In this session, the inside story behind the classic album Light as a Feather is told.

    Light as a Feather was the band’s second release with Flora Purim on vocals, Joe Farrell on sax/flute and Airto Moreira on drums. The album has become a total classic and includes Chick’s most popular composition, Spain.

    The storyline in this video reveals how Stanley’s first-ever composition ends up being the title track of this timeless Return to Forever record. And a huge bonus is seeing these long-time friends and musical partners deliver a beautiful duet version of Stanley’s tune.

    TRUTH IN RHYTHM - Lenny White , Part 1 of 2

    51:45

    Brought to you by FUNKNSTUFF.NET and hosted by Scott Goldfine — musicologist and author of “Everything Is on THE ONE: The First Guide of Funk” ― “TRUTH IN RHYTHM” is the interview show that gets DEEP into the pocket with contemporary music’s foremost masters of the groove.

    Featured in TIR Episode 89 (Part 1 of 2; see Part 2 here ): A giant of jazz, fusion and funk drumming -- Mr. Lenny White. His career got off to a spectacular start as in his late teens he followed in the footsteps of jazz drumming legends Tony Williams and Jack DeJohnette as first part of Jackie MacLean’s band and then Miles Davis. While still a teen, White’s first recording sessions wound up being Davis’ landmark jazz-fusion album, Bitches Brew. He then was also featured along with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Joe Henderson on trumpeter Freddie Hubbard’s highly recorded Red Clay album. At the same time in the early 1970s, he was working studio sessions with a who’s who of the jazz world during that time, including Woody Shaw, Gil Evans, Gato Barbieri and even Santana.

    White’s penchant for Latin-flavored jazz took him to becoming a member of the famed fusion band Azteca, which was formed by the Escovedo family and also included guitarist Neal Schon, later of Journey, and bassist Paul Jackson, who would soon become a member of Hancock’s Headhunters. White then joined the group for which he is best known, Return to Forever, the seminal groundbreaking jazz fusion band that also included Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Al DiMeola. RTF toured the world and recorded touchstone albums, while at the same time its members produced solo albums. While White debuted under his own name in 1975 with Venusian Summer, and contributed to his bandmate Clarke’s 1970s albums including the superlative School Days.

    RTF soon broke up and White continued to expand his playing, composing and production horizons both through his own albums and with others that included Jimmy Smith, Jaco Pastorius, Don Cherry, Pharoah Sanders, The Brecker Brothers and Steve Grossman. In the latter half of the 1970s, White unleashed a string of albums and that included his new band Twentynine and focused more on vocals, funk and R&B but also included jazz and fusion elements. The formula brought him his first black radio hits with funk songs like “P-Nut Butter” and “Kid Stuff.” He also released a great update of the Beatles’ “Lady Madonna,” featuring Chaka Khan. He would produce Khan, as well as Nancy Wilson, Diane Reeves, Rachelle Ferelle and Marlena Shaw, among others like Pieces of a Dream, Grover Washington, Wayne Shorter and even rapper Big Daddy Kane. White teamed with Marcus Miller to score the music for the cult comedy classic “House Party,” and also had a hand in the music for Spike Lee’s “School Daze.”

    In this in-depth interview, White goes deep on his start with Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard, being part of the lauded Return to Forever, his solo albums and other key collaborations, the most unforgettable memories from his 50-year career, and what he has been up to more recently, including lecturing at the Harvard Law School and Columbia University, hosting a podcast and putting together several recording projects. A central theme was no matter what the style is keep the music authentic and moving forward. White continues to shine as a bright beacon of musical light upon us all.
