Return to Forever featuring Jimmy Herring (with Zappa Plays Zappa)
Fabulous Fox Theatre
September 8, 2011
Hailed by many as a founding voice in the jazz-fusion movement of the 1970s, Return to Forever is back on the road.
On this night, they had Dweezil Zappa’s Grammy Award winning effort to keep the music of his dad, Frank, alive (Zappa Plays Zappa) serving as openers. Throughout the course of Zappa’s set, they stunned many in attendance — most notably during “St. Alphonzo’s Pancake Breakfast” — who seemingly had yet to hear ZPZ. Dweezil and company-definitely did their part to set the stage for the evening’s main event, Return to Forever.
