ABOUT THE MUSICIAN:

Lenny White is best known for holding the drum chair of Chick Corea's Return To Forever in the 1970s. White is self-taught on drums and started his career on top, playing regularly with Jackie McLean (1968) and recording the legendary fusion album Bitches Brew with Miles Davis in 1969. White was soon working with some of the who's who of jazz including Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Woody Shaw, Gato Barbieri, Gil Evans, Stanley Clarke, and Stan Getz among others. As a member of Return To Forever during 1973-1976, White gained a strong reputation as one of the top fusion drummers, but he was always versatile enough to play in many settings. After the breakup of Return to Forever, White headed several fusion projects and his work with the Echoes of An Era (featuring Chaka Khan) and the Griffith Park all-star groups have been widely acclaimed.
