Bill Connors is a jazz guitar legend having been a founding member of Chick Corea's RTF and a highly regarded solo artist. It has been over 15 years since Connors has made a record and rumors of a comeback record from Bill have piqued the curiosity of jazz/fusion fans worldwide who have not forgotten the impact that he has had on jazz/fusion guitar. With "Return", Connors has delivered perhaps his most impressive work to date and writers and reviewers in the genre have celebrated the chance to spread the good word about one of their heroes whose comeback record reveals Connors to be performing better than ever. Mike Stern adds, "I have always been a big Bill Connors fan and I really dig his playing. He is such a creative cat and I am glad he is recording again," while John Abercrombie writes, "Bill is a true innovator on the guitar, and it's great to have him back."
