WEATHER REPORT <> <> HEAVY WEATHER

"An all-time classic...Zawinul, Pastorius and Shorter at their zenith!"

HEAVY WEATHER remains the touchstone - and easily the best-selling
album by the pioneering jazz-rock fusion band Weather Report. Formed
in 1971 and continuing until 1986, the group's creative axis was
keyboardist/composer Joe Zawinul and saxophonist/composer Wayne
Shorter
.

Borrowing tinges of earthtones from Cannonball Adderley's sanctified
small groups of the 1960s and watercolors from the 1969 Miles Davis
album In A Silent Way, Weather Report's musical palette could be as
unpredictable and changeable as a New England spring, and as electrifying
as a sudden thunderstorm

Recorded in 1977, HEAVY WEATHER added dramatic new tonal colors, from Zawinul's electronics to the innovative fretless electric bass pulsations of Jaco Pastorius. The music ranged from Zawinul's catchy crossover hit single "Birdland" to his haunting tone poem "A Remark You Made," and from Shorter's stately "Harlequin" to the rocking undertow of Pastorius' "Teen Town."
