About Touchstone (1982)

Chick’s love of Flamenco music is a huge influence throughout his career, and it reached one of its peaks on the album Touchstone. Featuring acoustic and electric music intertwining beautifully throughout, the album features the legendary guitarist Paco de Lucia, along with leading lights of Latin music Carles Benavent, Don Alias and Alex Acuña. The writing is some of Chick’s most diverse and inspired, providing a perfect template for the epic flights of these virtuosos. For the aptly titled “Compadres,” Chick reunites the classic lineup of Return to Forever: Chick, Al di Meola, Stanley Clarke and Lenny White.
