Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #144

June 17, 2016

We’re continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped Gilles Peterson so far, we’ve decided to countdown from 200! The album this weeks is Light as a Feather by Return to Forever.

Stanley Clarke on the bass, Flora Purim’s slow and seductive vocals, Airto Moreira, Joe Farrell and Chick Corea; these are a few of the musicians who make up Return to Forever. Their 1972 release, recorded in Brazil perfectly joins the rhythms of Samba with the mellow tones of Purim. An essential!
