At the start of the 1970s Airto was invitedto join Miles Davis' groundbreaking 'electric' group, which with albumssuch as the seminal 'Bitches Brew' helping Davis regain his title fromJohn Coltrane as the most important jazz artist of all time. Two years later Airto helped establish two of the most important jazzfusion groups of all time: Weather Report, with Wayne Shorter, JoeZawinul and Miroslav Vituous; and Return to Forever, with Chick Corea,Stanley Clarke and Flora Purim.
