What You'll Get
Unlike nuclear fusion, jazz fusion occurs when atomic forces are smashed together using an alto saxophone made of concentrated boron. Become a Geiger counter of improvised polyrhythms with today's GrouponLive deal: for $39, you get one reserved balcony ticket to see Return to Forever IV at Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater on Tuesday, September 13, at 8 p.m. (a $69 value before fees, or up to an $78.75 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
A supergroup plucked from the freeform dreams of jazz aficionados, Return to Forever IV melds the skills of a remarkable crew of legendary virtuosos. Chick Corea's whirling keyboards, Stanley Clarke's raconteuring bass, and Lenny White's elliptical drums mingle with the post-Stradivarian bow-wrangling of Jean-Luc Ponty and the fluttery fingers of guitarist Frank Gambale to stir a sound palette as rich and rare as stolen unicorn gold. Adding to the tempest of untamed notes, Dweezil Zappa proves that talent doesn't fall far from the tree with Zappa Plays Zappa, for which he teams up with a collection of accomplished bandmates to salute the music of his father, Frank Zappa.
