The Return is the debut solo studio album by British jazz electronic musician Kamaal Williams, released in May 2018 via Black Focus Records.

Kamaal Williams is a British musician and record producer who rose to prominence alongside drummer Yussef Dayes in 2016 as one half of the short-lived London-based jazz group Yussef Kamaal following the release of the duo's debut album, Black Focus, which earned them the 'Breakthrough Act' award at the 2017 Jazz FM awards. In addition to live instrumentation, Williams also releases electronic music under the name Henry Wu.

Whether re-defining experimental fusion sounds with the hugely acclaimed Yussef Kamaal, or his catalog of 12"s for imprints such as MCDE, Eglo, and Rhythm Section as Henry Wu, South London's Kamaal Williams has been a key figure in his thriving international scene for the past few years.

The Return is a natural evolution from the Yussef Kamaal project, mining the influence of visionary jazz but blended with all kinds of texture, sounds and signals from the over-saturated London streets.

At times the keyboard work evokes the classic '70s fusion work of Lonnie Liston Smith or Roy Ayers, but underpinned by rhythms more reminiscent of blunted hip-hop and arrangements subliminally laced with the cut-ups of pirate radio.

This album is on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with a digital download code, pressed in the UK via Black Focus Records.
