Following in the footsteps of such luminaries as Bill Connors and Al Di Meola, Frank Gambale has assumed the guitar chair in Return To Forever. Would the fusion virtuoso have passed up the opportunity to play alongside Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White and Jean Luc Ponty? According to the Sydney Morning Herald:

I couldn’t turn it down. I’d be insane. It’s going to be a wonderful year of incredible gigs.

Gambale, of course, was Corea’s longtime foil in the keyboardist’s Elektric Band. Check out some amazing footage of the that group right here.
