A versatile drummer, Lenny White is still best-known for being part of Chick Corea's  Return To Forever in the 1970's. White was self-taught on drums and he largely started his career on top, playing regularly with Jackie McLean (1968)  and recording "Bitches Brew" with Miles Davis in 1969.

.As a member of Return To Forever during 1973-76, 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 RTF, Lenny White headed several fusion projects but none of the recordings  have dated well at all, emphasizing commercial funk. However his work with the Echoes Of An Era and Griffith Park all-star groups were been more successful and he has been a valuable sideman for a wide variety of projects. ! Energized by the success of l RETURN TO FOREVER 30-Year Reunion, Lenny White was anxious to introduce his next-generation PRESENT TENSE band to the same enthusiastic RTF audience that had filled concert halls around the world.

Lenny formed the original PRESENT TENSE in 1995, a band able to deliver Lenny’s eclectic musical message. After his beginning with Miles Davis (“Bitches Brew”), Freddie Hubbard (“Red Clay”), and RETURN TO FOREVER as an important founding father of “Fusion,”

Lenny  formed PRESENT TENSE with a mind that his musical exploration was still in its infancy. The first self-titled record included elements pulled from Lenny’s entire career, but moved forward into Hard Rock, Modern Hip-Hop, and even what could be described as Heavy Metal. Today, the exploration continues with Lenny’s new PRESENT TENSE, another band of younger, well-educated players who understand the complexities of Jazz, but who still have the open-minded abandon to follow Lenny’s quick-to-change-direction musical lead.

QUANTUM FANTAY plays a kind of music they like to describe as liquid space rock. If this discription sounds unfamiliar maybe the name of OZRIC TENTACLES does ring a bell. But QF is a lot more than just a clone of OZRIC. Their music is sounding like a mixture of progressive rock, electronic music, groove, world music and most of all psychedelic rock, it also contains elements of reggae and dub.
