Biography

Bassist Stanley Clarke was barely out of his teens when he exploded into the jazz world in 1971. Fresh out of the Philadelphia Academy of Music, he arrived in New York City and immediately landed jobs with famous bandleaders such as Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Pharaoh Saunders, Gil Evans, Stan Getz and a budding young pianist-composer named Chick Corea.

You will probably either love or hate this. The musicians are:
Stanley Clarke - Bass fiddle, electric bass,
Chick Corea - Electric piano, acoustic piano, clavinette
Lenny White - Drums, tambourine
Pat Martino - Electric Guitar, 12 string guitar
Dee Dee Bridgewater - Vocal
Andy Bey - Vocal
Arthur Webb - Flute
The vocals on for example Children of Forever and Unexpected Days are where the wheels might come off for you but with Corea, Clarke and White on board the music is as dynamic and tight as you'd expect. This is certainly an interesting companion piece to any Return to Forever collection and goes well withForever

Contrary to the previous contributors review the vocalists on here are two of the finest jazz singers ever to grace a recording, Dee Dee Bridgewater & Andy Bey & this was recorded at a fantastic time in jazz history when the cross pollination of styles was at quite an early and exciting stage. I don't think the word fusion was much in use back then or at least I don't remember it. Yes this isn't as slick or as rocky as later RTF stuff & if you consider Romantic Warrior to be where it all started then you may well not like this. This album is warm, loose, free blowing & most of the compositions are minor classics of the period appearing on several other albums...in other words this is a very cool album. Don't take my word for it the Allmusic review of this will tell you far more eloquently.

The two stars are for Corea's noteworthy contribution.... the rest of it is, to use my magnaminous fellow reviewer's analogy, AN ABSOLUTE WRECK - thanks to possibly the worst vocals (and they feature prominently on almost every track) I think I've ever heard. Bought, listened to (once) and binned in quick succession.

"Incomparable vocals" Really? Compared to what? This is an album full of great songs played by a fabulous band at the top of their form. However, this potential masterpiece is then completely undermined by Andy Bey's absurd, self-conscious, sub-operatic meanderings. Every track is turned into a nerve racking ghost train ride, torn between relaxing into the divine interplay of jazz illuminati but knowing that any moment the stupid 'look-at-me' tenor from hell will butt in and ruin the vibe. I blame the producer.
