"Reedición en doble CD con formato digipack y sonido remasterizado del álbum editado originalmente en 1973. Incluye nuevos textos y fotos. Todas las versiones incluídas en el segundo CD son inéditas. Uno de los mejores álbumes de la época jazz-fusion de los 70 y ejemplo perfecto del optimismo imperante entonces, el álbum incluía por primera vez el ahora legendario tema ""Spain"" interpretado por la formación clásica de Return To Forever: - Chick Corea: teclados. - Stanley Clarke: bajo, contrabajo. - Joe Farrell: flauta, saxos. - Airto Moreira: batería, percusión. - Flora Purim: voz, percusión"

The keyboard playing is probably the most noticeable thing about the album, since it's played in SUCH a creative, lightning fast way. I love it a lot. It's not typical jazz, that's for sure! But that's to be expected from the early 70's- everyone was in a creative groove back then. I love the saxophone solos that occasionally pop up as well. Overall, good stuff.
The title song starts off with a really soft and melodic vocal melody before quickly morphing into a furocious keyboard jam. When I say "furocious" it's not exactly borderline heavy metal. The keyboard certainly *sounds* quiet, but the amount of notes being played and the speed of the overall piece is quite unbelievable. The saxophone jam at the end sort of kills the pleasant mood but the notes are pretty decent at least. Actually repeated listens reveals the sax solo is downright fantastic and more melodic than I initially realized. The bass guitar solo is wonderful as well so all is fine in the end.
"Spain" can best be described as three separate musical journeys wrapped into one song. The first few minutes is just a really melodic and beautiful flute melody but then... the flute turns into a jam and the notes are really fantastic. The NEXT part however -the keyboard jam- is the highlight for me. More melodic passages that eventually lead into a very brief and John McLaughlin-like bass guitar jam. "500 Miles High" has the same formula as the title song (soft vocal melody, saxophone, keyboards, bass guitar) and the results are actually equally as satisfying. Asking me which song I prefer is, well, impossible and I'm not willing to do it!
The only low point is the opener "You're Everything". It's based around a VERY simple and lushy vocal melody with melodic swirling flutes... a little too soft for my tastes. On the other hand "Captain Marvel" is an *awesome* fast-paced jazz workout with flutes, keyboards and tempo changes galore. The most interesting song is "Children's Song". A musical box-type soft lullaby with a touch of jazz to make it unique. Cool song.
Overall, fantastic album (minus the first song). The three lengthy songs are just terrific examples of soft jazz done in an exciting way.
Initially, I thought that Light As a Feather was inferior to their debut. My roadblock was the solos. Although It's often overlooked by many others, jazz can get just as self indulgent as any technical metal band and prog rock band that so many people like to slam. Considering that a lot of jazz focuses on long solos, it can fall into the trap of bombast show-offs (Giant Steps). While, like Giant Steps, had a purpose to innovate, it still has a tendency to become self indulgent. While the very long solos on here can occasionally sound tedious at times, or amazing at other times (incostinecy, which is why this album fails to make a perfect score), they glide, they swoon, and there is melodic back up. Also, there is variety in the solos, and the enchanted rhythm section keeps everything gliding with grace. This isn't self righteous soloing, this is music! And yes, while it isn't as composition based as their debut (yeah, I kind of like composition based more than solo based), it still impresses with composing skills.
Your Everything may sound like something from a PBS documentary from the 70's, but that's not a bad thing since I find that to be great as it is. This one is great because it's quite short and includes a very short but totally meaningful and gorgeous solo. Samba rhythms, vocals and chiming flutes make up this great song. Light As A Feather is the first song to feature long soloing, but the eleven minute does not go to waste. The intro and outro are as graceful as a feather in the wind. Captain Marvel is kind of bombast, but man, the solos are great and the rhythms are addicting.
500 Miles High, may have a slightly cheesy line (since I'm pessmistic about love, which SUCKS) at the beginning, but it takes off and goes into....more solos!!!! But the rhythms and melody once again saves the solos, which, by the way, don't sound the same as the many long solos in this album. Children's Song may be the lowpoint, considering it's not really that conjuring and fails to make a lasting impression, I think it's filler. Spain, however, is another gem. This one floats serene at the beginning, yes, but it goes into more furious latin music, often refraining the drumless dance like passage. Spain is easily the best track on this album.
You may like subsequent Return To Forever albums, as I can't say YOU won't like them, but Return To Forever's first two albums are the only albums you need by the group. Essential. I haven't been able to stop listening to it ever since I got it.
