I paid my first visit to the Mann Center in Philadelphia after winning tickets from @TheArtsInPhilly to see Return to Forever IV. The band was smoking! Chick Corea, Jean-Luc Ponty, Stanley Clarke, Frank Gambale and Lenny White brought a spiritual energy that uplifted the audience of this spacious outdoor concert amphitheater.
Check out this promo video from the band’s website:
