Format: Audio CD
I really liked 2009s Returns and the related 2011 Corea, Clarke & White Forever. This is a definite step forward with the inclusion of Jean-Luc Ponty of violin (numerous solo albums, key Frank Zappa albums Hot Rats, Apostrophe / Overnite Sensation and with Mahavishnu Orchestra: Apocalypse, Visions Of The Emerald Beyond) and Frank Gambale on guitar (who has a long career as a solo artist: Brave New Guitar, Natural High, as pioneering guitarist and has worked with many other bands including the Chick Corea Elektric Band). This has added a new depth to the which makes it fresh and well worthwhile, this is not just a couple of guys added to round out the band, this is a band of peer.

I am not knocking the tune selection, and this band does have a lot to draw on, form RTF, Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke in particular. Many a jazz musician has traded on their early compositions for years and still come out sounding fresh and current.

Had the good fortune to see this concert live at the Sony Centre in Toronto last year and the experience was something I will remember for the rest of my life.
Brilliant musicianship and the smile never left my face through it all.
All of this is there to experience on this live CD, a solid wall of sound and when the stereo is cranked up just shut your eyes and you're almost in the theatre.
If you want to hear RTF at their best this is the album for you, buy it now, you won't regret it.

The mothership returns is a fantastic value for money excursion into the planet that RTF inhabit,the long tracks develope into mini symphonies of sound that few can replicate.
CD ONE (54.00)
"Medieval overtures" a fine starter to this journey,it reminds me a lot of the Mahavishnu orchestra,some intricate time changes give this an impressive,jazz rock feel,a good starter.
"Senor mouse"an old track revisited and at 12minutes long,reinvigorated,this is pure fusion jazz.
"sThe shadow of lo/Sorceress"what follows next is 16 minutes of top quality music ,it is great to hear Jean Luc Ponty on fine form,Stan the man is on good form as well.
"Renaissance"at 19minutes long,this is the kind of music that just gets better and better,makes young hopefulls want to give up!!

CD2(58.34)
"After the cosmic rain"another tour de force performance.
"The romantic warrior"possibly Return to forevers most famous tune,played superbly
"Concierto de Aranjuez/Spain"a piano arrangement of this popular tune ,made famous by Miles Davis on the "Sketches of Spain "album,try and listen to Jan Akkermans beautiful interpretation as well.
"School days"Filthy,fuel filled,fun,funk.
"Beyond the seventh galaxy"brings the proceedings to an end.

DVD(1.54.02)
"Return to forever.....inside the music"
"After the cosmic rain"

Wow! Stunning musicianship and a great value package. The DVD alone is worth the price. I grew up with these guys' music so there was something particularly heartwarming about seeing them still doing it and doing it so *****y well. Essential for RTF fans or lovers of great music.
