Product Description

Led by Miles Davis alumni Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter, Weather Report incorporated elements of electronic, rock and world music into jazz motifs. This 3-CD set covers their entire 15-year (1970-1985) career with 37 tracks, highlighted by favorites like In a Silent Way; Super Nova; Milky Way; Birdland; Havona; Eurydice (Full Version) and more, plus unreleased tracks. And the DVD offers two full hours of live Weather Report in their prime, performing with Jaco Pastorius on bass and Peter Erskine on drums. The forecast is very, very good!

Amazon.com

From 1970 to 1985, the jazz-fusion ensemble known as Weather Report reigned supreme as one the most distinguished and indefinable ensembles of the 20th century, and saxophonist Wayne Shorter and keyboardist Joe Zawinul were the cofounders of this ever-changing group. This superb, three-CD, 37-track collection features the band's incredible cast of musicians: drummers Peter Erksine and Alphonse Mouzon; percussionists Airto Moreira, Alex Acuna, and the late Don Alias; bassists Miroslav Vitous, Alphonso Johnson, and the incredible Jaco Pastorius. The roots of their sound are heard in Zawinul's "In A Silent Way," and their greatest hits--from "A Remark You Made" and an unreleased version of "Nubian Sundance" to their 1976 mega-hit, "Birdland," are included here, along with the lesser known classic, "Indiscretions," a DJ Logic, hip-hop remix of "125th Street Congress," and a sizzling, two-hour DVD concert from Germany in filmed in 1978. This set is a powerful primer to their "folk music of the future." --Eugene Holley Jr.

With the greatest respect to the incredible Bob Beldon, Joe Zawinul, and Wayne Shorter, this Box Set should contain a warning.
The warning is simple: If you already own most of the stuff in this collection, don't bother. If you're completely new to Weather Report, buy it.
Coming from someone that's seen the band perform every year since 1972 and own all their official and quite a few "other" releases, I was really disappointed with this project (except for the booklet).

Here are a few things that are puzzling:

1) A Weather Report Box Set includes three songs (two composed by Zawinul and one by Shorter) that were never released by Weather Report:
a. In a Silent Way. released by Miles Davis
b. Super Nova, released by Wayne Shorter
c. Experience in E (Excerpt), released by Cannonball Adderly
(I agree with the liner notes that point to these songs as pre-cursors, but mentioning them would have been enough - they are all in print)

2) An incredible typo stating that Alphonse Mouzon was the drummer on "Unknown Soldier"

3) Including a barely improved version of Nubian Sundance that has been in circulation for many years from "other" sources.

4) Including another "better than, but not by much" version of the "other" sources for the 1978 Rockpalast concert on DVD.

5) Not remastering any of the original recordings. The tape hiss from the Live in Tokyo (I Sing the Body Electric) songs is still clearly heard and not upgrading those old recordings is just plain unacceptable in this day and age.

6) Finally, the cover itself - I have no words, except to admit "I don't get it".

The truly great thing about this box is the focus put on the early WR and the post Jaco version of the band. Most best of collections skip either or both completely. Disc 1 which focuses on the very beginnings is tremendous. There are new mixes of "Eurydice" and "Orange Lady", an unreleased studio version of "Directions"....it just shows you how esoteric and great the original WR was. Disc 2 and 3 trace further evolution till the end (leaving out their horrid last album, which is very good).

The DVD included is a very nice thing to have; the video is pristine and the soundtrack while not Dolby 5.1 or DTS (I can't see how it could have been considering the year it was recorded) is terrific enough. Seeing Jaco do his solo piece during the Third Stone from the Sun medly really and truly brings back many great memories. But for my own tastes, as good as the DVD is, I would have preferred a fourth music CD instead. As dynamic as the first disc is, too much music is left out trying to cram some thirteen odd years onto two discs. There simply isn't enough room to do so. I realize that Tail Spinnin' is the overlooked WR album, but this should have been the time to bring that album back into focus. No "Punk Jazz" either???

Shorter and Zawinul had full control over this release, so who am I to quibble really. It's a great collection and those new to the band should indeed start here. Old fogies like myself should enjoy it for the memories it brings back....I forgot how good Victor Bailey was for example.

I just wish there was more music.......but this is well worth the money.

After years of planning and many false starts, jazz/fusion supergroup Weather Report is finally honored with a box set consisting of three cds and one smoking live dvd of the band at its peak when bass extraordinare Jaco Pastorius joined. Although there are only three tracks "from the vaults" (a fuzzily recorded alternate take of "Nubian Sundance", an alternate version of the Miles Davis staple "Directions" and a remix of the funky "125th Street Congress"), this box set still serves as an excellent overview of an important band. Tracks from all Weather Report albums are represented here except for the weak 1986 album "THIS IS THIS" (good move). Grammy-worthy liner notes along with rare photos dominate the colorful 100-page booklet that comes with the set. Box set producers Bob Belden, Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter are to be commended for putting together one of the best box sets of the year.

I've got all their albums and CD's, but this box set is a very nice collection. The DVD is well worth it - I think the clarity is fine, and again there is no other live footage of this band available that I'll ever see (I saw this tour actually). Nice booklet; the 125th Congress remix is just a waste of space and does nothing - why was that crap necessary?

Sound is good throughout - could've boosted the bass a bit more in the mix.

And the cover is just silly. 4 stars tho.

I am going to give WR 5 stars always.

But Dang, I mean how long will Sony/Colombia continue to release the same material. And the video, I mean almost every WR fan has the video & it is nothing like that 76 Montruex show. If they were going to do a Rockplast show they should have released the Belgrade 1980 show. That concert is the one in which they go cosmic (out of this world). For those who don't have the show, it's in circulation and it's poor quality but it ranks up their with the "IN Concert" Mahavishnu 73. At the end they play Badia/Boogie Woogie Waltz and Jaco, Joe and Wayne are phoenominal. I watch that show almost every month and I shake my head everytime in disbelief. You see most people don't realize it, but the 1980-1981 version of Weather Report was the best, and it's when Shorter came back with his free form playing. He's good on the 78 show but not great cause he's not improvising that much. The 1980 version of WR was like a free bebop fusion form of music. At the end of the show this guy is sitting in disbelief as the melody of "adios" is in the backgound. Jaco is playing like a god on this particular show, and Peter Erskine is holdin down the beat even though he is tired than a mother. I just wish Sony/Colombia would release the vaults and treat them with the same box set treatment as Miles Davis.

"The dwarf can see farther than the giant"

The dwarf being shorter and zawinul (Jazz Giants) begining weather report in 1971 (they were good but they came into their own in 1973).

But eventually they took music beyond what Miles (the Giant)did. And its a shame we Weather Report fans can't get what we want.

What we want is a box set(s) of all live material from 1973 to 1983. DvD shows that we don't already have from bootleging. But I guess I am on that "Dream Clock."
