The Leprechaun is an album by Chick Corea recorded and released in 1976. The album was recorded during Corea's time with his jazz fusion group Return to Forever. Though the album is more jazz oriented than anything Return to Forever had produced up to that time, the fusion edge still rings through quite clearly.

Chick’s creativity was running on overdrive in 1976, with Return to Forever introducing a whole new generation to jazz. The bouncing Imp’s Welcome and Pixiland Rag sit amid stellar longer compositions like Nite Sprite and Leprechaun’s Dream.
CHICK COREA - The Leprechaun. Filed under Fusion By CHICK COREA. This is the first album from a serious of three albums by Chick Corea which holds a complicate concept creations, with large variety and reach instrumentation. Other albums on that serious are 'my Spanish heart' and 'the mad hatter'. The overall style is sometimes jazzy-improvised, sometimes classical, and sometimes prog-inspired. It is really hard to categorize this music in just one of the disciplines. The concept in the entire album is not very clear but gives a flavor – the leprechaun, an Irish mythology creature that is quite mischief and naughty

CD - Universal Distribution. Chick Corea took a break from his fusion group, Return to Forever, to record this slightly more jazz-oriented effort. Such players as saxophonist Joe Farrell, trombonist Bill Watrous, and bassist Eddie Gomez are on the date (as is vocalist Gayle Moran), but few of the tracks are all that memorable. A somewhat forgettable effort.
