  • Return to Forever is one of the most important jazz albums of all time. Even after his time with Miles Davis and his increasingly inventive solo albums, nothing could have prepared listeners for the breathtaking beauty of this album. Chick, behind the electric keyboard, leads a brand new band through four of his compositions, all of which have become classics

    Stanley Clarke - one of Chick's most consistent musical partners - makes his first appearance on bass here, along with the superb Joe Farrell on sax and flute, Airto on drums and the stunning vocalist Flora Purim. The sound is distinctly electric, with Brazilian percussion and a lingering warmth never before achieved on a plugged-in jazz album. Return to Forever is an album for the ages.

    Press Reviews:
    "For the repressing of the fusion classic the 1972 fusion classic on 180-gram vinyl ECM fortunately did not filter anything out. The remnants of analogue tape noise one accepts with pleasure, belonging to the fiery Latin thrusts. Outstanding besides the (electric) piano cascades of the leader, the vocals of Flora Purim remain outstanding. "(AUDIO 10/2010)
