"Chick Corea has been a loyal Yamaha artist for many, many years, so we are thrilled to be able to partner with him and his legendary band and give this amazing gift to their fans," says Chris Gero, Vice President and founder of Yamaha Entertainment Group.
Driven by the powerful engine of Chick Corea's keyboards, Stanley Clarke's bass and Lenny White's drums, RTF IV takes to the road in the company of the superb French violinist, band leader legend and Mahavishnu Orchestra alum Jean-Luc Ponty and the fiery-fingered Australian guitarist Frank Gambale. Special guest Zappa Plays Zappa will join RTF IV in August and September in the states.
