The Return of Return To Forever
"RTF was big and RTF is back, with its classic line-up (Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola and Lenny White) regrouping, after dissolving in 1977, for a 2008 summer tour... There's little chance of new material but, based on The Anthology, there's more than enough existing music to keep legacy fans and newcomers happy."
