4 stars For their second album, Return To Forever was still not yet a fusion band. Sure, Chick Corea plays an electric piano throughout, but there is not a hint of rock. The album is a set of Chick Corea latin flavored jazz pieces, with one Stanley Clarke composition (Light As A Feather) thrown in.

But for what it is, it is a fantastic album. Corea and Clarke, as usual are incredible on their respective instruments. Joe Farrell plays some excellent solos, mostly on flute, and Airto Moreira is fantastic on drums. And Flora Purim is just sweet on the vocals.

The album has three songs that have become jazz staples in the decades since it's release. Light As A Feather, 500 Miles High and Spain have all been covered many times, but possibly not much better than these great recordings.

I find this to be an album to play when having friends over for a late night party on the deck on a hot summer night. Try it.
