The sixth album from Weather Report, recorded and released in 1975, features Joe
Zawinul and Wayne Shorter with the addition of Leon "Ndugu" Chancler on drums
and Alyrio Lima on percussion. Ndugu was asked to join as a permanent member of
the group but he opted to continue to work with Carlos Santana.
"As a result (of the addition of Leon "Ndugu" Chancler and Alyrio Lima), Tale
Spinnin' has a weightier feel than Mysterious Traveller, while continuing the
latter's explorations in Latin-spiced electric jazz/funk. Zawinul's
pioneering interest in what we now call world music is more in evidence with the
African percussion, wordless vocals, and sandy sound effects of "Badia", and his
synthesizer sophistication is growing along with the available technology.
Wayne Shorter's work on soprano sax is more animated than on the previous two
albums and Alphonso Johnson puts his melodic bass more to the fore... an
absorbing extension of Weather Report's mid-'70s direction." - allmusic.com
