WEATHER REPORT: JOE ZAWINUL, WAYNE SHORTER, MIROSLAV VITOUS, DOM UM ROMAO & ERIC GRAVATT

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 1972 fusion live masterpiece Live In Toyko would go on to yield one of the most important 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 masterwork is loaded with stellar classics and long extensive live workouts on smashes like Wayne Shorter's Eurydice and Tears, the Shorter/Zawinul collaroration Umbrellas and Joe Zawinul favorite Orange Lady.

As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Live In Toyko in its original vinyl form took their fans by storm, paying hundreds of dollars for the original Japanese import if they were lucky to find one.
