Return to Forever is a jazz fusion group founded and led by pianist Chick Corea. Through its existence, the band has had many members, with the only consistent bandmate of Corea's being bassist Stanley Clarke. Along with Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever is often cited as one of the core groups of the jazz-fusion movement of the 1970s.
Nonetheless, Return to Forever is every bit as classic, using a similar blend of spacy electric-piano fusion and Brazilian and Latin rhythms. It's all very warm, light, and airy, like a soft breeze on a tropical beach - hardly the sort of firebrand approach to fusion that Miles Davis, Tony Williams, and the Mahavishnu Orchestra were exploring, and far less rooted in funk or rock.
The Best Of Return To Forever. Chick had signed with Columbia and did the album "Romantic Warrior" the best fusion album ever. For reasons know only to Chick and L Ron he broke the band up and fired Al DiMeola and Lenny White. Then he hired a band for his wife Gayle Moran and called it Return To Forever and released "Music Magic" with the new band. There was also a live album of this group. In the 70’s I was a huge Return To Forever fan, for through Chick Corea and Carlos Santana I discovered Airto and Flora Purim, and even more importantly (to me) Al Di Meola.
