Jazz-rock supergroup Return to Forever unveils a special new 3-disc CD/DVD set, The Mothership Returns: two audio CDs filled with over 100 minutes of carefully-selected live music, culled from over 200 performances of RTF’s 2011 planetary tour.
Plus, you’ll get a bonus DVD featuring nearly two hours of unique footage, including 2 full length live song performances and a brand new documentary — Return to Forever: Inside the Music.
Chick, Stanley and Lenny tell the inside stories behind the music as only they can. RTF’s classic rhythm section — Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White — add Jean-Luc Ponty and Frank Gambale to the powerhouse quintet lineup.
The song selection is an RTF fan’s dream: band classics like “After the Cosmic Rain,” “Medieval Overture” and “Spain,” plus Ponty’s classic “Renaissance” and Clarke’s house-rocking “School Days.” The set is beautifully packaged in an 8-panel digipack with exclusive tour photos and essays by the band members.
