Musicmagic is the seventh and final studio album of fusion band Return to Forever.

This album contains the final line-up of the band, with only founders Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke returning from the previous album. This is the first album since Light as a Feather to contain vocals, featuring Corea's wife Gayle Moran. This album also marks the return of original member Joe Farrell on saxophone, along with several new members making up a five-piece horn section.

With the addition of trombonist Ron Moss, this lineup toured and recorded the live album Live.
