The Weather Report Weather Report 180g LP (Blue Vinyl)
180g Audiophile Translucent Blue Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso! Pressed at RTI!
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.
Their 1971 fusion classic self-titled debut Weather Report 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 thanks to the progressive
jazz, funk and rock cohesiveness and articulate musicianship of this power
This masterpiece is loaded with champions like Joe Zawinul’s brilliant Orange
Lady, the powerful Milky Way by Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul and of course the
prog leanings of Waterfalls and Eurydice all which made this a top charting
album in 1971.
As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Weather
Report also features the all-star lineup of Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Miroslav
Vitous (bass), Alphonse Mouzon (drums) and Airto Moreira (percussion). All in
all, Weather Report took the fans by storm, forever retaining the title
superstars to the Weather Report franchise.
