The most popular and successful lineup of Return to Forever -- Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White, and Al Di Meola -- was coming off the Grammy-winning No Mystery when it recorded its third and final album, Romantic Warrior. It has been suggested that in employing a medieval album cover (drawn by Wilson McLean), using titles like "Medieval Overture" and "Duel of the Jester and the Tyrant," and occasionally playing in a baroque style, particularly in Clarke's "The Magician," Corea was responding to Rick Wakeman's successful string of albums on similar themes. Certainly, the music suggests that the musicians have been listening to Wakeman's band, Yes, among other progressive rock groups. But they bring more of a traditional jazz approach to their sound, particularly in the opening statement of intent "Medieval Overture" and the original side one closer, "The Romantic Warrior," both of which feature extensive acoustic piano soloing by Corea. The original side two -- Di Meola's "Majestic Dance," "The Magician," and "Duel of the Jester and the Tyrant" -- is much more in a jazz-rock style, with Di Meola particularly rocking out on extensive, fast-paced electric guitar solos. Meanwhile, the rhythm section of Clarke and White is always extremely busy, maintaining a funky, driving pulse and several cross rhythms no matter what's going on above it. This is particularly noticeable, naturally, on White's sole composition, "Sorceress," but it continues to keep the music in the fusion camp even when Corea is sounding like a more traditional jazz pianist. Romantic Warrior is the sound of a mature band at the top of its game, which may help explain why it was Return to Forever's most popular album, eventually certified as a gold record, and the last by this assemblage. Having expressed themselves this well, they decided it was time for them to move on.

Impulse! Orange was the new Black

Insieme a Blue Note e Verve, Impulse! è senza dubbio l’etichetta americana di jazz più nota. Caratterizzata dal suo marchio arancione e nero, ospitò non solo John Coltrane, ma anche alcuni tra i musicisti più avventurosi degli anni ’60. Quest'anno celebra il suo 60° anniversario.

Obbiettivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

The Dark Side of the Moon, album-chiave dei Pink Floyd fu il risultato di un lungo processo creativo iniziato intorno al 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (il brano principale dell'omonimo album) fu, almeno per Nick Mason, il punto di partenza. L'album successivo, Ummagumma (1969), diede a ciascun membro della band l'opportunità di creare un brano solista, anche se avrebbero dovuto unire i loro talenti per fare davvero il jackpot. I Pink Floyd hanno continuato a cercare il disco perfetto con Meddle, un album che ha messo in evidenza le loro abilità in studio, e Atom Heart Mother, prima del tanto atteso nirvana con The Dark Side of the Moon. E la perfezione di quest'opera non è stata intaccata nel tempo.

Chris Connor, una voce dimenticata

E se la più grande cantante jazz cool fosse lei? Quasi dieci anni dopo la sua scomparsa, Chris Connor resta una della voci più sensuali della sua generazione. Il che mostra che nella vita non esistono soltanto Anita O’Day e June Christy…
