We continue with Chick Corea and the album Return To Forever from 2002. Corea probably needs little further introduction and curator Jordy de Muijnk is a great fan of his work. That’s why we are highlighting another album by this pianist who passed away in 2020. Return To Forever was released in 1972 with label ECM label and it is one of the first records on which Corea exchanged the grand piano for the keyboard.
