This is one of those returns that's been building anticipation for months: by popular demand, the legendary group that blazed the jazz-rock path in the 1970s. RTF, which gave one of the highlight concerts of the 2008 festival, is now a quintet: French violinist and Mahavishnu Orchestra alum Jean-Luc Ponty and the fiery-fingered Australian guitarist Frank Gambale join RTF's classic rhythm section, Chick Corea (piano), Stanley Clarke (bass) and Lenny White (drums), playing Return to Forever's classic repertoire as well as highlights from each member's solo career, and new material written specially for this lineup.
