4 stars This is the realm of the fusion featuring the pivotal band RETURN TO FOREVER with an amazing line-up: Al DiMeola on guitars, Stanley Clarke on bass (also organ and percussion), Lenny White on drum and percussion and bandleader Chick Corea on keyboards and percussion, four virtuosic musicians! The strong point on this album is the exciting interplay in eight tasteful and varied compositions, from mellow (with acoustic piano) to propulsive with many outstanding soli on keyboards (Minimoog) and electric guitar. Al DiMeola has a very distinctive sound: powerful, fast and using a special technique by 'deading' the strings, very spectacular when playing so fast! The absolute highlight is the track "Song To The Pharoah Kings" (almost 15 minutes): an Arab climate, Latin percussion and great soli on keyboards (Minimoog and Fender Rhodes electric piano), bass and guitar (supported by a dynamic rhythm-section and a duel with Chick Corea). If you want to discover the fusion/jazz rock music, this is a perfect album to start!
