Pianist Chick Corea, bassist Stanley Clarke and drummer Lenny White - each a powerful force of nature in his own right - have done more in recent decades to redefine jazz-rock fusion and push the limits of its potential than any other musicians today. Together they formed the core of the classic, most popular and successful lineup of Return to Forever, the legendary seminal electric jazz fusion band. After reclaiming the jazz-rock world in 2008 with the triumphant return of Return to Forever, Corea, Clarke and White decided to revisit where it all began, to get back to basics and the soul of their relationship.
The result is Forever, a two-CD set of 18 quintessential tunes. Recorded live, disc one of Forever is a best-of sampler from Corea, Clarke and White's "RTF-Unplugged" world tour in 2009. Highlights include jazz standards "On Green Dolphin Street," "Waltz for Debby" and "Hackensack," exquisite Corea-classics "Bud Powell" and "Windows," Clarke's new "La Cancion de Sofia" and even RTF pieces "Senor Mouse" and "No Mystery." Disc two is a bonus CD with its own story.
