Return to Forever IV will be coming to St. Louis on Thursday, August 25, bringing its legendary jazz fusion sound to the Fox Theatre. Last week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jean-Luc Ponty, violinist of the first rank, who is currently touring with the group.

We discussed Ponty's discovery of jazz, his interest in world music, collaborations with Frank Zappa and much more. Zappa Plays Zappa opens for Return to Forever IV at the Fabulous Fox.
