Mr Gone was disappointing. I played it again after someone on here did a thread on most disappointing albums or some such Night Passage came as a relief that WR were back to something like their best and the live show that went with it was simply brilliant. I came out afterwards with such a buzz. The rest of them I picked up over a short period so I have no history with them when they were released. Oh, it really could be any of them The early WRs really could just be described as electric avant-garde rather than jazz-rock.

Took me a while to warm up to the poppier Sweetnighter, but I truly love that record now. I must be the only one out there who found Jaco to be annoying in the way he pushed himself to the front of the band, although it was sad to also watch him decompensate with severe bipolar disease. And oh yeah, Dom was not replaceable.
I have a vinyl import copy of the Live in Japan set, which is a bit uneven performance-wise. Body Electric is short and sweet. ATR , Feb 12, They had some of the mystique of the Beatles or Pink Floyd in their presentation, but also lots of improvisation and jazz history, so they were key for me in making the transition back to Miles I looked them up in a rock book and found that a couple of them had been on a record called Bitches Brew and then outward to everyone else.
I liked Jaco and in those pre-Internet mid 80's I spent a few years wondering why we weren't hearing much from such a great player. Then I saw the headline "jazz great Pastorius dead at 35" in a newspaper one day in I recommend all their records, perhaps with reservations about Mr. Gone and their last two or three.

It seems that Weather Report has become this forgotten, unhip group over the years which is a real shame IMO. While some of the sounds employed on the records could be considered dated Fender Rhodes, the "Jaco" bass sound - the ideas behind the music are consistently engaging.
The fact that the group personnel and sound changed so much would make it seem like the "Zawinul and Shorter Show", but there's more to it than that. Columbia , Sony. Jazz Collection: Weather Report.
