Bill Connors (born September 24, 1949) is an American jazz guitarist who was a member of Chick Corea's band Return to Forever . With Kim Plainfield + Lincoln Goines. Night and Day (Metalimbo Records, 2002).
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 biography Bill Connors is known in fusion circles primarily for being the guitarist with RETURN TO FOREVER on their groundbreaking "Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy" album in 1973. While that was his breakthrough into the jazz and fusion recording industry, he quit the band after the single album and tour, due to creative differences. Since then, he has gone on to a successful solo career, as well as sitting in with other jazz giants, such as Stanley Clarke, Jan Garbarek and Paul Bley. In recent years, he has even performed again with the revived RETURN TO FOREVER.
Bill Connors will always be best known for being the original guitarist with Chick Corea's Return to Forever, preceding Al DiMeola. After making one classic album (Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy), Connors left RtF and has had a lower profile ever since, spending some time exploring acoustic guitar. On 2004's Return, Connors is back on electric guitar but playing post-bop jazz rather than fusion and with a tone closer to Kenny Burrell than to DiMeola. His nine originals sometimes have catchy grooves but they are never predictable.
