I recently reacquired this little 70s jazz fusion gem to replace a battered old tape copy, and boy, was it worth it! All cleaned up and remastered, it sounds fresher and more dynamic than ever.
Firstly, it has to be said that these guys all possessed impecable Jazz credentials, and were numbered among the finest players on the planet in their day, in any musical genre, and the level of musicianship on this album remains staggering despite the intervening 30 years. Corea's considerable compositional and playing skills are well to the fore, as the group engages with and then masters all manner of rock styles, from prog thru psych to folk. Where the Mahavishnu Orch was more concerned with overwhelming power and spectacle, RTF were much more concerned with the music itself, and the tracks are all unfailingly melodic and inventive.
Whether on the fluid funk of "Sorceress", the prog inspired title track, the dark strangeness of "Magician", or the upbeat sparkle of "Majestic Dance", Corea's percussive piano runs and magical chord and tempo changes race alongside riffs and solos that fly from the fingers of Stanley Clarke and Al Di Meola like incandescent cometary fragments, wild and crazy but always with an immaculate control so often lost on rock players. Lenny White's drumming is the strong, still centre of the maelstrom, so deft and exquisite as it holds the music in place that you barely notice it, until it jumps up and demands your appreciation as he drops in a sharp fill, or executes the time signature equivalent of a high speed hand-brake turn.

The real amount of fluidity from the music displayed here on this recording from those long forgoton days of the mid seventies by "Return to Forver" was their own abilty as young Jazz muscians to take on the intensity of rock and roll then they make something else from the direction of the flow of the music was going.
"Romantic Warrior" shows the ability to rise above the average of general recordings of the time the 1970's and display that Jazz muscians can rock while existing on the edge of spontaneous combustion that has always been the cutting edge which defines Jazz from what now is we tend to label as jazz.
Those days are gone but not forgotten.

I remember bunking off school to sneak into my friends house and listen to his older brothers brand new copy of this and thinking...I never knew music like this existed!!!
And now exactly 40 years later I finally own a copy. It is every bit as fresh and exciting to listen to as it was back then.
Digitally spiffed up so that all of the incredible virtuosity of these 4 guys just leaps out at you.
Add to that the fact that it's an absolute steal for the money.
My purchase of the year so far!!
Happy, happy, joy, joy.

I rank this album as one of the great jazz-fusion records, along with Mahavishnu's Inner Mounting Flame and Al Di Meola's Land of the Midnight Sun. The interplay of the musicians is just staggering, with Chick Corea's keyboards at the heart of it all, underpined by Lenny White's very subtle and intricate drumming, then Stanley Clarke's driving base lines and of course Al Di Meola's spiralling guitar runs, both electric and acoustic.

The tracks are superb compositions, with melody and inspired playing from all the musicians, who really do sound totally committed to the music, which to me is what makes it so good an album. It is one that has stood the test of time - one of my favourites!

Even though this album was first released in the wonderfull musical years of the 1970s, I am young and have quite recently discovered this extraordinary music. The 70s was decade were jazz, rock and the experimantal new fusion with is huge mix of instruments, genres and styles flourished. Romantic Warrior is a highlight from the jazz super-band featuring heroes like Chick Corea, Al Di Meola, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White (on this album). It is an experimenting and a bit humoristic album, but they acchieve a remarkable and impressive atmosphere and sound that has had a major and important impact on jazz and music in general, that is this album by it self as much as all the players career in whole. These Gods have managed to put so many genres, styles, instruments and techniques in to this one album which through great coplaying and performance in general delivers six masterpieces that all are groundbraking. This album is a must-have for all musicians, jazz-lovers, prog-heads, fusionists, experimentists and all other musiclovers! Great!

I reviewed this album separately as the work of 'Return To Forever' but have just noticed that Amazon has listed it under Chick Corea. The musicianship on this excellent album is outstanding. All 6 tracks are fabulous (two, including the title track, are over 10 minutes long) and the whole album is a great listening experience (the sound quality is superb). There is a magical mix of styles and a broad range of instruments used here - I found the whole album really impressive. Highly recommended.
