Weather ReportBlack Market ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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 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 ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 (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

✨✧ Weather ReportWeather Report Live In Tokyo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Friday Music, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Miles DavisDecoy ... CD
Columbia, 1984. Used ... $2.99
The decoy here might be in the rhythms, which are often electric, but still played live – handled by Robert Irving III on many tracks, with a cool 80s fusion sound that's mighty nice! The style of the album's a nice change from the Miles groove of the 70s – a bit leaner, with almost a Weather Report influence at times, but far less jamming – and still prone to the darker tones that always make Davis' music of these later years surprisingly good. Al Foster handles acoustic drums on some tracks, and other players include Bill Evans on soprano sax and Mino Cinelu on percussion – on titles that include "Decoy", "Robot 415", "Code MD", "Freaky Deaky", "What It Is", "That's Right", and "That's What Happened".

Natural LifeUnnamed Land ... LP
Celebration, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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".

✨✧ Jaco Pastorius & OthersJaco – Original Soundtrack (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Sony, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ 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
