Album Review

The third and final edition of Return to Forever gave Chick Corea an excuse to write for a four-piece brass section and to tour with bassist Stanley Clarke, his old friend saxophonist Joe Farrell, drummer Gerry Brown and his future wife, vocalist Gayle Moran. Unfortunately, the compositions are not too memorable on this set and the lyrics are a bit lightweight. Better to acquire this group's live recording if possible.

I love this album. Bought it when it was released in the 70's and it's been a mainstay in my library ever since. The music is lyrical like a sweet fairy tale that takes you far away and dances across the heavens with your senses. To coin an old phrase "It's cosmic".

At the time, this was seen as a means of creativity, a new direction for jazz, and as a way of attracting the kinds of large audiences enjoyed by rock musicians. Return to...
