CRITIC REVIEWS

Overall The Return is a vital addition to both the budding career of Kamaal Williams, and to modern jazz as a whole.

Exclaim!
There is a timelessness to this record that's as connected to the electric jazz pioneers of the '70s as it is to today's best fusion players.

Pitchfork

Much of The Return highlights Williams as a master arranger.

Crack Magazine
For jazz and funk lovers, it’s a gem.

AllMusic

While The Return implies, and often delivers on, Williams' clear desire to recapture the plasmic spirit of vintage '70s jazz-funk, the album is less of a return to past traditions and more of a rebirth.

No where near the standard of the Yussef Kamaal collaboration in my opinion.
