The legendary Weather Report set the music world on fire back in the early
seventies with their hypnotic blend of progressive-fused jazz with funk, prog-rock
and soul, augmented with the brilliant and skillful musicianship of their
superstar founders Wayne Shorter on saxophone and various electronic reeds and
the late great Joe Zawinul on a stunning array of keyboards and electronic
instruments. Both of these legendary musicians/composers worked with Miles Davis
on his classics like Bitches Brew, plus solid tenures with legends like
Cannonball Adderley (Zawinul) and Art Blakey (Shorter) all of which would prove
to become the huge catalyst for things to come.
Throughout the seventies and beyond, Weather Report’s fine arsenal of recordings
would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts. The 1973 fusion
classic Sweetnighter would go on to yield one of the biggest albums of their
career as it hit the top rungs of the jazz charts, plus major showings in the
pop and R&B charts.
No stone is left unturned, as this masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit with
smashes like Joe Zawinul’s funk infused Boogie Woogie Waltz, the powerful
Manolete by Wayne Shorter and of course Miroslav Vitous’ soulful Will. As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Sweetnighter
took the fans by storm, forever retaining the title superstars to the Weather
