5 stars I Don't really know how to express my astonishment with Return to Forever I first got into the Chick Corea band-wagon when I listened to a few recordings with him and Victor Wooten. I decided it was time to acquire more of his music. I first (and you're going to laugh) acquired some extra Chick tunes when I received the Songs of West Side Story a soundtrack that featured Chick re-doing some of the musicals' classic tunes. I was amazed! Shortly after I heard one of my good amigos saying how good Romantic Warrior was and how that album was one of his top favorites. I then ran and acquires some of the tunes of the album (eventually leading to all six of them).

I started listening and wow, I was amazed with the musicianship in the first couple of minutes of the track Medieval Overture then onto my favorite track Sorceress where bassist Stanley Clarke features some impressive technical work. The album has a similarity with is nice Jazz-rock-Fusion styles that balance so well with the piano work done by Chick. It makes a crossover among genres so well, it's hard to even tell how that is progressive and that is fusion. An incredible instrumental album that I highly recommend! It serves well for any Jazz lover looking for something new in the genre. Look no further, Return to Forever Romantic Warrior is your start to a whole new world of awesomeness!
