I am not knocking the tune selection, and this band does have a lot to draw on, form RTF, Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke in particular. Many a jazz musician has traded on their early compositions for years and still come out sounding fresh and current.Read more ›
Brilliant musicianship and the smile never left my face through it all.
All of this is there to experience on this live CD, a solid wall of sound and when the stereo is cranked up just shut your eyes and you're almost in the theatre.
If you want to hear RTF at their best this is the album for you, buy it now, you won't regret it.
CD ONE (54.00)
"Medieval overtures" a fine starter to this journey,it reminds me a lot of the Mahavishnu orchestra,some intricate time changes give this an impressive,jazz rock feel,a good starter.
"Senor mouse"an old track revisited and at 12minutes long,reinvigorated,this is pure fusion jazz.
"sThe shadow of lo/Sorceress"what follows next is 16 minutes of top quality music ,it is great to hear Jean Luc Ponty on fine form,Stan the man is on good form as well.
"Renaissance"at 19minutes long,this is the kind of music that just gets better and better,makes young hopefulls want to give up!!
"After the cosmic rain"another tour de force performance.
"The romantic warrior"possibly Return to forevers most famous tune,played superbly
"Concierto de Aranjuez/Spain"a piano arrangement of this popular tune ,made famous by Miles Davis on the "Sketches of Spain "album,try and listen to Jan Akkermans beautiful interpretation as well.
"School days"Filthy,fuel filled,fun,funk.
"Beyond the seventh galaxy"brings the proceedings to an end.
"Return to forever.....inside the music"
"After the cosmic rain"
"The romantic warrior"

I bought Return to Forever's Romantic Warrior LP back in 1976 and it was a revelation. Those were the days when you could ferret around in the local record store and you never knew... Read morePublished on 30 Nov. 2012 by Mrs. P. BROOKSBANK
