Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Shortly after Weather Report released the "Mysterious Traveller" album (the last WR album to feature an appearance from Miroslav Vitous), Joe Zawinul spoke to Down Beat magazine about Vitous's departure from the band:

"Well [long pause], there was something that Miroslav couldn’t provide us with: [...] a base. Everything has to have a base, a root, a bottom; you cannot play, man, without a bottom. And Miroslav was traveling in high speed, with great dexterity and all that, but his mind was changing that quickly and that doesn’t set things up right."

Roughly two years later, Vitous released the exceptionally funky "Magical Shepherd," a musical middle finger thrust in Zawinul's general direction. The album features Herbie Hancock (in full Headhunters mode), drummers Jack DeJohnette and James Gadson, and percussionist Airto, along with a pair of tripped out female vocalists: Cheryl Grainger and Onike. This album has very little in common with anything else in the Vitous catalog; those looking for another "Infinite Search" or "Universal Syncopations" should probably look elsewhere. This is a greasy space funk record, with a bit of disco ("New York City") thrown in for good measure.

There is nothing showy about Vitous's bass playing on this record; it's all about the groove, which starts at about 1:20 into the first track and doesn't stop until the final 10 seconds of the album. Hancock is surprisingly not given any solo space at all, but his Clavinet and Rhodes add another thick foundation layer to the groove. Gadson is as funky as ever, and DeJohnette plays some of his funkiest grooves since the Miles Davis "Live Evil" album.

So, why only four stars?
