Weather Report8:30 Live ... CD
Hi Hat, 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
Weather Report at the start of the 80s – really stretching out here in a live performance from a tour in support of their 8:30 album at the time! The style here is sharper and more hard-edged than that album, though – as the live setting shakes off some of the warmer studio elements, and exposes the group still very powerful at the core – with some especially bold elements coming from the keyboards of Joe Zawinul and saxes of Wayne Shorter! The rest of the lineup includes Jaco Pastorius on bass, Peter Erskine on drums, and Bobby Thomas on percussion – and titles include "Madagascar", "Three Views Of A Street", "Port Of Entry", "Dream Clock", "Brown Street", and even a "Bass Solo" from Pastorius!

Weather ReportBlack Market ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good ... $2.99
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 ... LP
CBS, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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".

Weather ReportI Sing The Body Electric ... CD
Columbia, 1972. New Copy ... $2.99 6.99
Beautiful early work from Weather Report – one of the finest statements ever uttered by group, and a set that's got a bit more soul and warmth than their first album! The lineup's changed slightly at this point – still Wayne Shorter on reeds, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, and Miroslav Vitous on bass – but Eric Gravatt has replaced Alphonse Mouzon on drums, and Dom Um Romao's taken over for Airto on percussion – giving the record an even earthier feel at times! Despite the sci-fi promise of the title and cover image, the electronics are toned down slightly for this record – making for a set that's sometimes more personal, yet which also explodes with a new sense of majesty on some of the fuller tracks. The latter of these add in some extra horns and a few singers – used sparingly, but beautifully – and titles include "Unknown Soldier", "The Moors", "Crystal", "Surucucu", and "Directions". CD

Weather ReportLegendary Live Tapes 1978 to 1981 (4CD set) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $52.99 59.98
A hell of an overdue collection – and on that definitely doesn't use the word "legendary" lightly – as the four CDs' worth of music are all an essential addition to the Weather Report catalog! The music here is from a stretch when the group was really on fire – and the recording quality is excellent throughout, and maybe with an edge that was sometimes disappearing from the group's studio records – an undercurrent of darkness that really takes us back to the initial five years of the project, especially on the long tracks that really have them stretching out on solos. Material is by a quartet version of the group – with Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Wayne Shorter on reeds, Jaco Pastorius on bass, and Peter Erskine on drums – and by a quintet version which adds in Robert Thomas Jr. The 4CDs are overstuffed with music –- 28 long tracks in all, packaged with plenty of notes – and titles include "Joe & Wayne Duet", "Birdland", "Jaco Solo", "Wayne Solo", "Sightseeing", "The Orphan", "Forlorn", "Madagascar", "Night Passage", "Teen Town", "Peter's Drum Solo", and "Directions".

Columbia, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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. Used ... $4.99
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 ReportWeather Report (1982) ... LP
Columbia, 1982. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A self-titled early 80s set from Weather Report – not to be confused with the group's debut over a decade before – and one that still has key core members Wayne Shorter, Joe Zawinul, and Jaco Pastorius in place! Shorter's reeds seem even more angular than before – really chopping against the rhythms, which are themselves quite pronounced – not in a funky way, but more in a chunky style – thanks to tight work on the kit from Peter Erskine. Zawinul's keyboards also take on these modes too – often pulsing out, instead of flowing out – possibly directed by the powerful basswork of Pastorius, who's really in his early 80s stardom here. Titles include "Volcano For Hire", "Current Affairs", "NYC", "When It Was Now", and "Dara Factor One". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Weather ReportAgora – Columbus, Ohio, October 17th 1972 ... LP
Hi Hat (UK), 1972. New Copy ... About February 20, 2016
Early work from Weather Report – recorded here in a small club in Ohio, with a sound that's even more intense than their early 70s studio albums! There's some surprisingly noisy currents at times – almost the vibe that some of the group members might have picked up from working with Miles Davis – and the mix of Joe Zawinul's heavy electric keyboards with the acoustic lines of Wayne Shorter on saxes is wonderful – especially when sewn together by the heavy bass of Miroslav Vitous! Dom Um Romao adds in lots of earthy percussion alongside drums from Eric Gravatt – and titles include "Improvisation", "Vertical Invader", "Orange Lady", "In A Silent Way", "Dr Honoris Causa", and a few percussion passages.

Columbia, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

✨✧ Weather Report8:30 ... LP
Columbia/ARC, 1979. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Weather Report at the height of their 70s fame – captured live in a double-length set, very much the practice for jazz superstars of the time! The format is familiar – but the liveness gives the album a slightly different feel than their studio sets – a sound that echoes out strongly along with thunderous applause from the crowds, who are themselves clearly situated in some very large arenas. And while the studio Weather Report albums are easily documents of the group's power themselves, it's something extra to hear the crowd going nuts for them here – cheering on Jaco Pastorius during a frenetic bass solo, roaring with approval at a Joe Zawinul keyboard bit, or clapping with enthusiasm after Wayne Shorter finishes a snakey solo. Tracks are all longish, and titles include "Scarlet Woman", "Black Market", "Birdland", "Thanks For The Memory", "8:30", "Brown Street", "In A Silent Way", and "Slang". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Weather ReportMr Gone ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great late 70s set from Weather Report – a record that's certainly got more polish than the early years, but which still sounds plenty darn great to our ears – thanks to a really free-flowing sense of imagination! The tunes here have a wonderfully chunky sort of approach to the groove – that kind of building, pulsating quality that always marked Weather Report as organic, even when electric – and which gave their music a sense of soul, even when it was sometimes smooth. There's enough dark corners here to shake off any of the more commercial touches – and it's wonderful to hear the way that Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul have evolved the original Weather Report ethos into something new and fresh. Titles include "Punk Jazz", "Mr Gone", "The Elders", "Young & Fine", "River People", and "The Pursuit Of The Woman With The Feathered Hat". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Weather ReportWeather Report (1971) ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The groundbreaking first album from Weather Report – a massive session that took fusion to a whole new level for the 70s! Most of the players here had been associated with Miles Davis at some point in the year or two beforehand – and Miles' electric work is definitely a starting point for this group – but they quickly flow off in whole new directions, thanks to the mighty legacy of their own talents on previous records! The group features an intense lineup with Wayne Shorter on saxes, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Miroslav Vitous on bass, Alphonse Mouzon on drums, and Airto on percussion – all coming together in a groove that's often incredibly raw and free – with plenty of sharp electronic bits from Zawinul crackling under the acoustic elements in the music. The sound is still quite revolutionary all these years later – and titles include "Tears", "Eurydice", "Orange Lady", "Umbrellas", and "Milky Way". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jaco PastoriusJaco Pastorius ... LP
Epic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
This is the one that really nailed it for Jaco Pastorious – a brilliant showcase for all his many talents on the bass, and a key illustration of the way that he influenced an entire generation! Sure, Jaco in Weather Report was already pretty darn great – but here, on his own, he really gets to sparkle – jamming hard with heavyweights on some funky numbers, sliding out in spacey territory on mellow cuts, and even trying out a few more experimental moments that are far beyond what most other bassists might imagine for a debut of this nature. Players on the date include Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Don Alias on percussion, Lenny White on drums, Hubert Laws on flute, and Randy Brecker on trumpet – and titles include "Portrait Of Tracy", "Donna Lee", "Continuum", "Okonkole Y Trompa", "Kuru/Speak Like a Child", "Opus Pocus", and "Come On Come Over".

Jaco Pastorius & OthersJaco – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Sony, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
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.

Ben Webster & Joe ZawinulSoulmates ... LP
Jazzland, 1963. Sealed ... $29.99
An unusual early album by Joe Zawinul – one cut at the start of his early fame with Cannonball Adderley (and years before his success in Weather Report) – but in an easygoing way that's a perfect setting for the aging Ben Webster! Joe's not funking things up the way he did with Cannon, and instead he's gentle and soulful – often hitting more sensitive moments that match the emotive blowing of Webster nicely. The recording quality is great – and captures Ben especially well on the ballads – and other players include Sam Jones or Richard Davis on bass, Philly Joe Jones on drums, plus Thad Jones on cornet on a few tracks. Titles include "Frog Legs", "Evol Deklaw Ni", "The Governor", and "Soulmates". LP, Vinyl record album

Jaco PastoriusJaco Pastorius Anthology – The Warner Brothers Years (180 gram pressing) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Stunning work from bassist Jaco Pastorius – a player who'd already wowed audiences with his seminal 70s sides with Weather Report, and on his own – but an artist who really finds a way to grow even more on these early 80s sessions for Warner Brothers! Pastorious continues to push the electric bass into so many different spaces – from fast rhythmic riffs, almost like a drum – to spare, ethereal lines that have a very evocative quality – to meloic pulses that make Jaco as important to his generation as Jimmy Blanton was to a previous era. Many numbers here feature largeish lineups – with musicians who include Michael Brecker, Wayne Shorter, and Bob Mintzer on tenor; Hubert Laws on flute, Peter Erskine on drums, Don Alias on percussion, Toots Thielemans on percussion, and Randy Brecker on trumpet – and titles include a previously unreleased version of "Donna Lee" – plus songs recorded with other artists – "Nativity" with Airto, and "Mood Swings" with Mike Stern – as well as Jaco material from the albums Word Of Mouth, Birthday Concert, and Word Of Mouth Big Band Live in Japan. Titles include "Okonkole Y Trompa", "Sophisticated Lady", "Fannie Mae", "Amerika", "Reza", "Punk Jazz", "Domingo", "Invitation", and "Chromatic Fantasy". LP, Vinyl record album

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".
