ON THE ORIGINAL ONE .

Best known as the drummer in the recently reunited RETURN TO FOREVER, Lenny White is so much more. Along with fellow drummers Tony Williams and Billy Cobham, Lenny is rightly considered one of the founding fathers of FUSION JAZZ . and distinguishing himself even more, Lenny moved on to lead bands and projects that covered the entire musical spectrum.

_________________________________

KEEPING TIME .

As with many drummers, Lenny White's career is often overshadowed by the so-called "lead" instruments in the bands of which he is a part, but as were Max Roach, Art Blakey, Tony Williams, and Billy Cobham, Lenny has also made important contributions as a skilled composer and arranger who has led a number of his own bands, and has written and produced more than 20 albums of his own.

________________________________

FAMILIAR RHYTHMS .

For 1989's Manhattan Project, Lenny formed a collective that put his old friends Stanley Clarke and Wayne Shorter together with pianist Michel Petrucciani. The show included Lenny's arrangements of standards such as "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" (posted here) and "Summertime," as well as favorites out of band members' individual catalogs. And adding to the richness of the performance, Lenny recruited the synthesizers of Gil Goldstein and Peter Levin allowing him to add layers of orchestral complexity.
