Return of the Mack is the debut studio album by English singer-songwriter Mark Morrison. It was first released through his Mack Life Records imprint in the United Kingdom and then released by Atlantic Records in the United States, with distribution via Warner Music Group on April 22, 1996. The album includes a well-known popular song "Return of the Mack", in which the song stayed for a remarkable forty-one weeks on the US Billboard charts.
As soon as Williams’ celestial keys begin to percolate and swirl on the opening Salaam, it’s clear that little has changed. The track’s silky chords and sluggish grooves satisfy like a cold beer in the summertime, with the 1970s R&B flavor highlighting Williams’ eagerness to venture a couple degrees further away from jazz than he did on Black Focus. Much of The Return highlights Williams as a master arranger. On Broken Theme, the off-kilter drums and keys sound like they’ve been beamed in from two completely different planets, yet every few seconds, they snap into line, bringing balance to the wild freak-out. The calming Medina, meanwhile, is the song most rooted in the tradition of basement jazz clubs. The serene mood is as timeless as whiskey and bitters, and Williams caresses the keys like he has all the time in the universe. Should you be looking for flaws, there are a couple of strange decisions.

The record features three unheard tracks, plucked from the same sessions as Bermuda Drain. Despite its providence, Through The Window is evidently a very different beast to Bermuda Drain. Where that album was essentially a collection of short-form songs, Through The Window is much more expansive in each nature: the title track clocks in at almost 20 minutes, with only ‘Terracotta Spine’ resembling Fernow’s punchier material.
