This respected group has always sought to extract a diverse and deep sound. They have always been adventurous in the choice of material, and in the philosophical approach to the music. They produce a great impression of a mixture of artistry and power of influence. It makes sense to have them for your own collection.
Chick Corea and Stanley Clark ftw. I can't really think of a better piano or bass player. Everything's just so goddamn SICK that they put out. Finally just got Hymm of the Seventh Galaxy and Romantic Warrior. Another reason I wish I was this age in 1970.
I received my first RTF album when I was 10 and it scarred and amazed me at the same time from that moment on I was hooked. Light as a feather to music magic. Chick and crew always put a smile on my face.
OK, this is coming from a jazz fusion noob, but Romantic Warrior is WEIRD. Looks like a power metal album, sounds like video game music. WTF? (I have read that it was inspired by Rick Wakeman's solo albums, though.)
