Park down the street so you don't have to pay $15-$20 for parking...less than a half mile walk.

Dweezil and his band were amazing. Great sound, very tight. Wonderful renditions of old favorites like Yellow Snow and Cosmic Debris. Chick joined them at the end for one... continued

Description

Return to Forever IV is a jazz fusion group founded and led by keyboardist Chick Corea. 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. Several musicians, including Clarke, Flora Purim, Airto Moreira and Al Di Meola, first came to prominence through their performances on Return to Forever’s albums.

Their first album, titled simply Return to Forever, was recorded for ECM Records in 1972 and was initially released only in Europe. This album featured Corea’s now famous compositions “Crystal Silence” and “La Fiesta.” Shortly afterwards, Corea, Airto, Clarke and Tony Williams formed the band for Stan Getz’s album Captain Marvel (1972), which featured Corea’s compositions- including some from the first and second Return to Forever albums. Their second album, Light as a Feather (1973), was released by Polydor and included the song “Spain,” which also became quite well-known.

From February 2011, the group commences a world tour. The lineup, billed as Return to Forever IV, is Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White, Frank Gambale and Jean-Luc Ponty.
