Weather Report started out as a jazz equivalent of what the rock world in 1970 was calling a “supergroup.” But unlike most of the rock supergroups, this one not only kept going for a good 15 years, it more than lived up to its billing, practically defining the state of the jazz-rock art throughout almost all of its run.

Weather Report’s fourth recording finds Wayne Shorter (on soprano and tenor) taking a lesser role as Joe Zawinul begins to really dominate the group’s sound. Most selections also include bassist Alphonso Johnson and drummer Ishmael Wilburn although the personnel shifts from track to track. “Nubian Sundance” adds several vocalists while “Blackthorn Rose” is a Shorter-Zawinul duet. Overall the music is pretty stimulating and sometimes adventurous; high-quality fusion from 1974.

Heavy Weather is Weather Report’s 7th album, released in 1977 through Columbia Records. It is the band’s 2nd album with bassist Jaco Pastorius. On Black Market, Pastorius played on 2 of the 7 tracks, but here he is a full member of the band. It is on the short list of LP’s considered to be the greatest of all Jazz-Fusion recordings.

Genre: Jazz

Weather Report were a jazz supergroup formed in 1970, best known outside the jazz world for their hit “Birdland”. This is Weather Report’s sixth album and the first with the bass player Jaco Pastorius who features on two tracks. Black Market is an instrumental jazz fusion album. The album draws heavily from African influences and its style could be described as “world fusion”. The second song, “Cannon Ball” is tribute to Zawinul’s then recently deceased former band leader, saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley.

The first two Weather Report albums to feature Jaco (and two of their very best) were combined on to a single cassette, containing the smash hit “Birdland”. If cassette was your format, this was a great way to pick up two great albums, but it is now out of print.

The saxophone has been associated with the sensuous sounds of the sultry city for decades. The steamy streets, secluded corners and chiaroscuro of the cityscape are perfectly suited to the deep reedy sound of jazz’s sexiest instrument.
