A musical chameleon, guitarist Bill Connors has gone through at least three different incarnations in the past. As the first guitarist in Chick Corea's Return to Forever, Connors attracted attention for his stinging and passionate work on Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy (Polydor, 1973). But no sooner had his star begun to rise than he left the band, the more aggressive fusion stance of the band being a far cry from the more Latin-informed group that he joined on the basis of Light as a Feather (Polydor, 1972). Back from Connors' '80s recordings is drummer Kim Plainfield, last heard on pianist Bill O'Connell's genre-bending Latin Jazz Fantasy. O'Connell is on board as well, as is bassist Lincoln Goines, who has had a remarkably diverse career with artists including Mike Stern, Eliane Elias and Michel Camilo.

Bill Connors: Return by Jim Santella, published on August 14, 2005. Combining light Latin smooth jazz with searing contemporary thrills, Bill Connors proves that he's been hard at work practicing, writing music, and studying since his last two albums, Double Up and Assembler, were recorded in the late 1980s. No sense in letting such great guitar chops get stale. With Return, he's able to turn it loose and demonstrate the same fiery technique that he displayed with Return to Forever in 1973-74 and later with a wider selection of contemporary jazz veterans. Personnel: Bill Connors (guitar), Bill O'Connell (piano), Lincoln Goines (bass), Kim Plainfield (drums), Myra Casales (percussion). Title: Return Year Released: 2005 Record Label: Tone Center.

Kim Plainfield (March 24, 1954 – April 8, 2017) was an American jazz drummer who has performed with Bill Connors and Pointer Sisters, among others. Born in the San Francisco Bay area, Plainfield moved from there to New York City in 1977, where he started his musical career with numerous show and studio recordings. From 2002 on, Plainfield was an Associate Professor of Drums and Percussion at Berklee College of Music.

Track 10 (Brasilia) has an annoying mixing defect: when listened to through headphones there is a wooden percussion on the left channel that is perceived as coming from outside of the headphones while all other instruments are within.
