The studio side featured compositions, which used extended versions of the band including various guest performers, suggesting that Weather Report was not necessarily an integral jazz band, but might possibly work as an expandable project set up to realise the music of its three composers.
I Sing the Body Electric also showed the first signs of a shift in the balance of control within the band, wasy from the more collective approach of the debut album. The following year would see this tendency develop further, primarily at the expense of Miroslav Vitous.
Melodically and rhythmically, Miroslav was great; what he did do, Teen Town - Weather Report - 8:30 (Cassette, in terms of where I was coming from, was very unique. Miroslav was still playing acoustic, and it was an odd kind of Album) funk. It was very… interesting! The change in approach would affect the band deeply.
Andrew White III had returned to play occasional English horn on the album, but Zawinul also employed him on bass guitar on three tracks in order to get the style of funk playing required. Gravatt took his replacement in the studio sessions badly and quit the band at the Album) of recording, moving to Minneapolis to join the band Natural Life. Recruited by Shorter, Johnson was a supple player more than capable of providing the funk element, which Zawinul desired.
He was also an early advocate of the Chapman Stick, which he can be heard playing on some of the live Weather Report recordings of the period. To shore up the music the band hired another drummer, Darryl Brown, to play alongside him.
Ndugu recorded with Weather Report for a week and recorded all of the drum tracks for the forthcoming album. However, he declined to join as a permanent member, opting instead to continue with Santana. Johnson recommended his friend Chester Thompson a former Frank Zappa sidemanwho joined as drummer in time for the next tour.
The album also made further strides in utilizing technological improvements in synthesizers, even making use of the gigantic studio-based TONTO array. During the same year, Shorter also recorded the seminal and well received Latin-jazz Native Dancer under his own name with the Brazilian composer and vocalist Milton Nascimento.
However, the album was recorded during yet another period of change for the group, with multiple personnel shuffles. Although Walden played on several album tracks, he ultimately proved unsuitable.
Thompson returned for the final Black Market sessions, but left again after failing to gel as a rhythm section with Pastorius whose style was much busier than that of Johnson. The band made a very well received appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival, which was filmed for future release. Pastorius, reaching to accentuate his bass guitar sound with harmonics The recruitment of Jaco Pastorius helped to push Weather Report to the height of its popularity.
Already a rising star in his own right, Pastorius brought a very musical, melodic quality to the bass. Shorter had been focusing most of his attention and compositional ideas into his solo work, while Zawinul was sketching out ideas for a solo album of his own, which involved moving away from a raw group sound in favor of constructing a far more orchestrated and experimental studio-based recording with multiple overdubs.
Gone Erskine would become a full member of the band for the next tour and would remain with Weather Report until Notoriously, Mr. Gone received only a 1-star review rating from Down Beat magazine after a string of group releases, which had all pulled a 5-star rating.
The group arranged for a rebuttal interview with the magazine to defend their efforts. Zawinul and Pastorius were defiant in their responses to the interviewer, Shorter more philosophical, and Erskine the most reticent of the four.
Instead, all four members doubled on percussion at various points in live performances. Zawinul would comment that this sleeker, less crowded sound provided more listening range and made the music less chaotic now that the band were now focusing more on melody and harmony. Gone tour and captured the direct power and energy of this lineup of Weather Report. That band was a hummer!
Thomas featured on s Night Passage album. Towards the end of the year, Pastorius began working on his long-delayed second solo album Word of Mouth in New York, while Zawinul worked on new Weather Report material in California. In the event, Pastorius spent more of his creative attention on the Word of Mouth project, with his only writing for the Weather Report album being his contribution to a single group-composed piece.
Shorter who only contributed one whole composition to the album beyond group-written work was already taking a more philosophical approach.

Editors’ Notes Following the excesses of Mr. Gone, the live album presented Weather Report as a lean quartet: Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Wayne Shorter on saxophone, Jaco Pastorius on bass, and Peter Erskine on drums. The recording comes from a November concert in Long Beach, Calif., that Zawinul later called “magical.” It heightened the group’s intensity when there were. The double live album (which won that year’s Best Jazz Fusion Performance) was recorded on the Mr. Gone tour and captured the direct power and energy of this lineup of Weather Report. Zawinul would later describe this lineup as “one of the greatest bands of all time! Listen free to Weather Report – (Black Market, Scarlet Woman and more). 13 tracks (). Weather Report: live & studio Side 1 (live) 1. Black Market (Zawinul) 8'35 2. Scarlet Woman (Zawinul) 8'10 Side 2 (live) 3. Teen Town (Pastorius) 5'54 4. A Remark You Made (Zawinul) 7'36 5. Slang (Pastorius) 4'45 6. I saw Weather Report in two concerts to promote the album that featured three sides recorded live and one side of studio work. It was at a point where the band was at its commercial height, but not letting the burden of popularity weigh the group down (that was to come later when Joe Zawinul sacked Jaco Pastorius, as the great bassist began to succumb to his personal demons)/5(). 来歴. タイトルの「」は、午後8時30分から開演するというこのバンドの習慣から取ったものである。実際のツアーの際には、バンドは4人編成となっており、この4人で約2時間30分もの間演奏を続けなければならなかったため、各々のメンバーが、自分の名人芸を披露するためだけでなく、他の. weather report - teen town (bass solo) album - tabbed by - andreas hamberg ([email protected]) i think it's pretty accurate, i've only been playing for 2,5 years now, so if you find some mistakes i'm not surprised. is the tenth album of the jazz fusion group Weather Report, issued in by ARC/Columbia Records.

After reaching the apex of their commercial point with recent albums including Heavy Weather __ is a live album bearing all the trappings of that success. At this stage the impetus looks to be more on ego than aura, the majority of Weather Report studio albums were packed full of exemplary musicianship and the band were always willing to explore and merge varying styles but this live effort is a lazy run .
