Fusion never really went away, but thanks to the efforts of two of its greatest innovators, it’s been making a powerful comeback in recent years. Keyboard legend Chick Corea reunited with guitaristAl Di Meola, bassist Stanley Clarke and drummerLenny White for a summer 2008 tour of fusion progenitor Return to Forever, that became one of the year’s biggest successes, documented on the double-CD set Returns (Eagle Records, 2009). If that wasn’t enough, he’s followed up that tour by teaming with guitar icon John McLaughlin for a lengthy tour by their collaborative Five Peace Band quintet, beginning in the fall of 2008 and continuing through to May 2009, with another double-CD live set due out from Corea’s Stretch Records on April 28, 2009.
