✨✧ Weather ReportMysterious Traveller ... LP
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A new sense of focus in the Weather Report sound – that building, soaring groove that would become the group's trademark in the mid 70s – offered up here in one of it's first and finest examples! The approach is one to describe accurately on paper – but which is instantly recognizable as the Weather Report sound of the time – a flowing, stretching, organic vibe that builds equally from the talents of all players, and turns it into a wonderfully righteous groove! Senior members Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, and Miroslav Vitous are still at the core – alongside Dom Um Romaeo, Alphonso Johnson, and Ismael Wilburn. Tracks include "Mysterious Traveller", "Jungle Book", "Nubian Sundance", and "Cucumber Slumber". LP, Vinyl record album

Weather ReportSweetnighter ... CD
Columbia, 1973. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Weather Report – an album that has them picking up a bit more soul than before, and shaking off some of the experimental sounds of their roots – yet all in a way that still makes them one of the most revolutionary fusion combos of the time! There's an incredible sense of tightness between the reeds of Wayne Shorter, the keyboards of Joe Zawinul, and the bass of Miroslav Vitous – and even when things go a bit outside, there's always a sense of focus and groove that brings them back together – a style that's never entirely funky, but which has plenty of funky elements to please our ears! Dom Um Romao's percussion is always a treat, and Zawinul's electric keys come through beautifully in the mix – on tracks that include "125th Street Congress", "Boogie Woogie Waltz", "Adios", "Manolete", "Will", and "Non-Stop Home".

Weather ReportTale Spinnin' ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A beautiful title for a beautiful little record – one that really does have Weather Report spinning out musical tales in sound – with a free-flowing and soulful sense of energy! The groove's definitely tighter than the earlier years, but it's never slick – and Joe Zawinul handled the overall orchestrations for the record, with an approach that's often highly rhythmic, vamping, and building up nicely as the tunes roll on. There's definitely some echoes here of Wayne Shorter's love of Brazilian music – although represented in a relatively subtle way – and Ndugu Chancler's working with the group here on drums and percussion. Titles include "Man In The Green Shirt", "Lusitanos", "Badia", and "Freezing Fire". LP, Vinyl record album

Weather ReportWeather Report Live In Tokyo ... LP
CBS (Japan), 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99
A Japanese-only album from Weather Report – recorded early in the group's career, and with some of the same sort of freedoms that Miles Davis was getting on his own double-length dates from Japan! The tracks here are quite stretched out, and often adventurous – showing a marked ability to jam heavily at one moment, get contemplative the next, and continually explore sounds on the frontiers of fusion in the 70s. The group's the "second chapter" Weather Report – with Wayne Shorter on reeds, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Miroslav Vitous on bass, Eric Gravatt on drums, and Dom Um Romao on percussion – and titles include "Orange Lady", "Vertical Invader/Seventh Arrow/TH", "Surucucu/Lost/Early Minor/Direction", and "Tears/Umbrellas". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Japanese pressing, with insert. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Weather ReportBlack Market ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A new chapter in the sound of Weather Report – but one that's still equally classic! Founding members Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul are joined here by Jaco Pastorius on bass, Chester Thompson on drums, and Alejandro Acuna on percussion – and Pastorius especially helps bring a lot of new colors and energy to the group! The style is still somewhere in the space of years past – somewhat cosmic at times, but also well-suited to leaner, flowing grooves that stretch out warmly – making great use especially of Zawinul's keyboards. Added players include Alphonso Johnson on bass and Don Alias on drums – and titles include "Black Market", "Cannon Ball", "Three Clowns", "Barbary Coast", "Herandnu", "Elegant People", and "Gibraltar".

✨✧ Weather ReportHeavy Weather ... CD
CBS, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the biggest hits ever for Weather Report – thanks to Joe Zawinul's leadoff track "Birdland" – one of those tunes that entered the canon immediately, and saw countless covers pop up over the years – kind of a rare thing for a jazz tune at this point in time! The track's driving, building energy shows a newly focused side to Weather Report – one that's traded some of the spacier, more experimental moments of the past for a dynamic energy that still puts them ahead of most other 70s fusion supergroups. The presence of Jaco Pastorius is felt quite strongly here – especially on the way the colors ebb and flow up from the bottom – and the way that Jaco's using his bass with the energy of a solo jazz guitar! Alex Acuna and Manolo Badrena are on percussion, and Wayne Shorter's reeds still crackle with a nice degree of soul – on titles that include "Harlequin", "Rumba Mama", "A Remark You Made", "Teen Town", "Palladium", "Havona", and "The Juggler".

✨✧ Mahavishnu OrchestraInner Mounting Flame ... CD
Columbia, 1971. Used ... $3.99
A massive set of fusion from Mahavishnu Orchestra – a group that features some incredible guitar work from John McLaughlin, who sounds even more focused and driven here than on his own records! As with Return To Forever or Weather Report, the combo's a supergroup of sorts – with Billy Cobham on drums, Jan Hammer on keyboards, Jerry Goodman on violin, and Rick Laird on bass – all wailing with great intensity on some of the best numbers – a lot more energy than you might expect from their slightly more meditative name! Titles include "Meeting Of The Spirits", "Dawn", "The Noonward Race", "A Lotus On Irish Streams", and "Vital Transformation". CD

Dom Um RomaoHotmosphere ... LP
Pablo, 1976. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Known world-round for his classic work with Sergio Mendes and Weather Report, percussionist Dom Um Romao is one of the greatest Brazilian musicians of all time, and this compilation of 1976 recordings for Pablo has him playing in a nice raw groove. The tracks have a beautifully jazzy sound, and feature lots of great Latin players, like Claudio Roditi, Ronnie Cuber, Dom Salvador, and Mauricio Smith. The group's joined by Sivuca, who adds his usual delightful tone to a number of tracks on the album. Titles include "Spring", "Cisco Two", "Piparapara", "Tumbalele", "Escravos De Jo", and "Mistura Fina". (Brazil, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Swiadectwo DojrzalosciHulaj Dusza ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer fusion combo from the Polish scene of the 70s – one who seem to take strong inspiration from Weather Report in their sound, and who also feature a very strong bassist in the lead! Wojciech Bruslik is at the helm here on electric bass – often more structured than Jaco Pastorius, but sharing a similar force in the group – and able to both hold things tight in the rhythm department, and encourage the other members to take flight in these very vivid solos. The music's never too jamming – like some of the Euro rock/fusion outfits of the time – and also has some soulful currents, but without being like some of the American soul fusion. The lineup features Fender Rhodes, guitar, drums, and alto and soprano sax – and the set features both a rare radio session, and an additional live performance – both from 1977. Titles include "Blotnik", "Hulaz Dusza", "Zlota Raczka", "Swiatynia Dumania", and "Ladaco". CD

✨✧ Jaco Pastorius & OthersJaco – Original Soundtrack (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Sony, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A sweet collection of cuts from the legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius – a player who completely revolutionized the electric bass in the 70s! Before Jaco, the instrument was often used in the background – still strong, but without as bold of a soloing presence, and maybe less of a melodic force too. Pastorius changed all that – as legions of musicians and listeners will tell you – and as this collection with mightily support – with great cuts recorded by Pastorius both as a leader, and in Weather Report – and even working with other artists too – alongside a handful of cuts by later artists who owe an undeniable debt to Jaco. Titles include "Come On Come Over", "Continuum", "Okonkole Y Trompa", "Liberty City", "Portrait Of Tracy", and "Crisis" by Jaco Pastorius; "Teen Town", "River People", and "Barbary Coast" by Weather Report; "All Almerican Alien Boy" by Ian Hunter, "The Dry Cleaner From Des Moines (live)" by Joni Mitchell, "Longing" by Mary Pastorius, "Come On Come Over" by Mass Mental, "Shine" by TechN9ne, and "Continuum" by Rodrigo Y Gabriela.

✨✧ Natural LifeUnnamed Land ... LP
Celebration, Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Subtely spacey fusion stuff from this obscure midwestern combo known for their spiralling lines. The group features Mike Elliott on guitar, Bobby Peterson on electric piano, and Robert Rockwell III playing reeds in a choppy, Steve Grossman kind of way, but probably most notable is the inclusion of Weather Report drummer Eric Gravatt on half the tracks, and truthfully the set has a kind of slightly straighter version of Weather Report feel to it overall. The set alternates between more succinct numbers and lengthier tracks, with 5 numbers in all, and titles that include "April Fantasy", "Arrival/Departure", "Freeways", "Unnamed Land" and "Trio: Budgy/Migration/Springtime Tundra". LP, Vinyl record album
