Their appearance on The Old Grey Whistle Test, which primarily welcomed rock and pop acts, was another sign of the way fusion had crossed over. Although it was a relatively concise song for them, “Medieval Overture” — the lead track from 1976’s Romantic Warrior, which made it up to Number 35 — distilled the Return to Forever and fusion experience. Playing sometimes in unison and sometimes individually, the band incorporates the looseness of a jazz ensemble, the power-chord intensity of a rock unit, and the synth-solo flash of a prog band.
