Weather Report8:30 Live ... CD
Hi Hat, 1980. Used ... $9.99
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 ReportAgora – Columbus, Ohio, October 17th 1972 ... CD
Hi Hat (UK), 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
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.

Weather ReportBlack Market ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1976. Used ... $14.99
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. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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 ReportMr Gone ... CD
Columbia, 1978. Used ... $2.99
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". CD

✨✧ Weather ReportLegendary Live Tapes 1978 to 1981 (4CD set) ... CD
Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Weather ReportLive At Shinjuku Koseinenkin Hall Tokyo – June 28, 1978 ... LP
Alternative Fox (UK), 1978. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
The mighty Weather Report were fusion legends in the studio – but somehow, they can sound even more amazing in a live setting – as you realize that all that complexity and razor-sharp performance in their music was never just an aspect of tricky tape work or editing, but the real deal from some of the greatest musicians of the 70s! This version of the group is a quartet – a killer lineup with Wayne Shorter on saxes, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Jaco Pastorius on bass, and Peter Erskine on drums – really soaring out on a strong double-length performance, with versions of "Teen Town", "Birdland", "Scarlet Woman", "A Remark You Made", "Black Market", "Gibraltar", and a special "Keyboard Solo".

✨✧ Weather ReportWeather Report Live In Tokyo ... LP
CBS (Japan), 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... 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".

Culpeper's OrchardMountain Music – The Polydor Recordings 1970 to 1973 (Culpeper's Orchard/Second Sight/Going For A Song/bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
The complete Polydor Recordings of Culpeper's Orchard – a Danish group who are every bit as enigmatic as their name! The set begins with their debut – a great record from overlooked Danish group at the start of the 70s – a combo who could easily step between folksy and progressive modes, and who often had a warm sense of harmony in their vocals! Culpepper's Orchard are always very much their own sort of group – but they have a great way of shifting back and forth between key styles of the time – so that the harmonies might rival CSNY, while the acoustic elements might echo the darker corners of the Island Records scene, and more electric moments might link these guys to more of their Scandinavian contemporaries. The production is really top-shelf – clearly a big push on the group by Polydor at the time – and the album's one of those rock-solid European obscurities that really deserves wider recognition. Titles include "Gideon's Trap", "Blue Day's Morning", "Mountain Music", "Teaparty For An Orchard", and "Ode To Resistance". Next is Second Sight – wonderful work from Culpeper's Orchard – a group who equally balance headier elements with softer, more acoustic modes – often using harmonized vocals in a really great way! Unlike American acts of the early 70s, who were shifting from a CSN-inspired sound to soft rock, Culpeper's Orchard really keep things sharp here – mixing in some excellent guitar work to balance the vocals, so that they've got this double-pronged approach, and a more rocking vibe overall! Titles include "Julia", "Keyboard Waltz", "Late Night Woman Blues", Mind Pollution/Weather Report", and "Satisfied Mind". The group continue their strong run on the album Going For A Song – but also add in more acoustic modes, including mandolin and dobro, mixed with some steel guitar – to unlock more rootsy elements in their sound. Titles include "Trying To Find Home", "Good Days", "Alone In Pain", "Sailor", "New Day New Day", "Before It Began", and "Roger & Out". CD set also features the single cut "Steamhouse", and three more tracks from compilations! CD

Columbia, 1971. Used ... $1.99
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

Jaco Pastorius & Brian MelvinJazz Street ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $16.99
Tight funky 80s fusion from the team of Jaco Pastorius on bass and Brian Melvin drums and drum programs – both working in a very electric mode that fits the spirit of the time! Pastorius gets in plenty of great lines – both lead and solo – and his work here is kind of an update of the fusion modes he famously explored with Weather Report in the 70s, tuned towards technologies of the next decade, and mixed with contributions from Rick Smith on saxes, Jon Davis on keyboards, and Paul Mousavi on guitar! Titles include "Jazz Street", "No Slack", "Miles Mode", "May Day", "Drums Of The Yadzarah", and "Wedding Waltz". CD

Joe ZawinulConcerto Retitled ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 60s/1976. Used ... $19.99
Early recordings by Joe Zawinul as a leader – mostly tracks from the 60s, but issued by Atlantic in the mid 70s to work off Joe's growing fame in Weather Report! The set's got a sound that's a fair bit different than some of the more dynamic work that Joe was doing in the 70s – and many numbers are somewhat mellow, or somewhat modern – played with definite third stream jazz influences that show Zawinul's more serious side after years working as Cannonball Adderley's famous sideman. Together, the tracks actually create a wonderful tapestry of sound – one that's hardly a mis-matched batch of tunes from a variety of records, and which works surprisingly well as a whole! Titles include 2 numbers from his Rise & Fall Of The Third Stream album, combining motifs and an overall approach taken from contemporary classical composition with jazzy improvisation with a string quartet augmenting Zawinul's group – "From Vienna With Love" and "Concerto Retitled". Then there's 4 tracks from his hard to get soul jazz/hard bop side Money In The Pocket, "Del Sasser", "Sharon's Waltz", "My One & Only Love", and "Riverbed". And finally there's 2 numbers pulled from the spacious electric album Zawinul, "His Last Journey", and "In A Silent Way". CD

Joe ZawinulTo You With Love ... LP
Strand, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
Very early work from Joe Zawinul – an unusual trio outing recorded upon Zawinul's initial arrival in the US, years before later fame with Cannonball Adderley and Weather Report! Although Joe's heavy-grooving touch on the keys was a big part of the Adderley sound in the 60s, his style here is lighter and more lyrical – sweetly contemplative at times, but still also with a bit of rhythmic vamping from time to time – hinting at that sound that would blossom more strongly on later recordings. There's a flowing grace to the record that we really love – and which is ably supported by the bass of George Tucker and drums of Frankie Dunlop – as well as by Ray Barretto's congas, which groove nicely on a few tracks. Titles include "Easy Living", "Love For Sale", "Masquerade Is Over", "Greensleeves", "Squeeze Me", and "Sweet & Lovely". LP, Vinyl record album

Zawinul SyndicateBlack Water/Lost Tribes ... CD
BGO (UK), 1989/1992. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Two Joe Zawinul albums – back to back on a single set! Black Water is funky fusion from the late 80s combo of keyboardist Joe Zawinul – a set that takes off nicely from his classic work in Weather Report, then adds in both a dose of soul and more global elements! The group features Joe on a host of different keyboards – with Gerald Veasley on some very heavy bass, Scott Henderson on guitars, and Lynne Fiddmont Linsey on vocals and percussion – joined at times by Carl Anderson and Kevin Dorsey, who both give the set a full, righteous vibe! Instrumentation is heavily in an 80s electric mode, but warmed up nicely by the other touches and percussion – and titles include "Black Water", "Carnavalito", "In The Same Boat", "Familial", "Medicine Man", "They Had A Dream", "And So It Goes", and "Monk's Mood". Lost Tribes is a record that has the legendary keyboardist Joe Zawinul dipping further into the mix of jazz and global elements brought forth by his Syndicate group – served up here with a really unusual mix of elements, and a strong balance between acoustic percussion and electric instrumentation! The voice is as powerful here as the groove – sometimes song soulfully, but other times used almost more as another instrument – opening the door further to some of the global sensibilities that Zawinul was bringing to some of his later work with Weather Report. the group features Mike Baker on drums, Randy Bernsen on percussion, and Gerald Veasley on bass – and titles include "Changes", "San Sebatian", "Rua Paula Freitas", "South Africa", "Patriots", and "Lost Tribes".

Grateful Dead, 1973. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album issued by the Grateful Dead on their own label – a setting that might make you think they'd act with less control than when at Warner Brothers, but which actually seems to have them doing the reverse! The whole thing's a great back-to-basics effort – sharp songs, rootsy instrumentation, and this nicely compact presentation of all the best ideas they'd been percolating for the past five years – maybe expanded a bit on the longer "Weather Report Suite" that ends the record, but tight and sing-songy on most of the rest – titles that include "Row Jimmy", "Stella Blue", "Let Me Sing Your Blues Away", "Eyes Of The World", and "Here Comes Sunshine".

A rare cross-cultural session from 1979 – one in which Columbia Records was allowed to record live performances involving a number of American jazz musicians playing alongside Cuban groups like Irakere and The Cuban Percussion Ensemble! The blend of modes here is really great – somewhat in the territory of Irakere's albums for Columbia, but a lot wider-ranging overall – sometimes sensitive and jazz-based, sometimes much more upbeat and jamming! Jazz players include Dexter Gordon, Paquito D'Rivera, Jimmy Heath, and Stan Getz on tenor sax; Arthur Blythe on alto sax, Cedar Walton on piano, Jimmy Heath on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – as well as the members of Weather Report, who turn in one especially cooking number. Irakere plays "Mil Ciento De Junedad" and "Contradanza", Weather Report play "Teentown", Cuban Percussion Ensemble play "Scherezada/Sun Sun", John McLaughlin's Trio Of Doom play "Para Oriente" and "Continuum", and assorted jazz players handle "Tin Tin Deo", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Sounds For Sore Ears", and "I Wanna Be".
