Return to Forever

Return to Forever Biography (Wikipedia)

Return to Forever is an American jazz fusion group, founded and led by pianist Chick Corea in 1971. 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. Several musicians, including Clarke, Flora Purim, Airto Moreira and Al Di Meola, first came to prominence through their performances on Return to Forever albums.

After playing on Miles Davis's groundbreaking jazz-fusion albums In a Silent Way (1969) and Bitches Brew (1970), Corea formed in 1970 an avant-garde jazz band called Circle with Dave Holland, Anthony Braxton and Barry Altschul. However, in 1972, after having become a member of Scientology, Corea decided that he wanted to better "communicate" with the audience. This essentially translated into his performing a more popularly accessible style of music, since avant-garde jazz enjoyed a relatively small audience.
