WEATHER REPORT refuses
to slow down. Their new al-
bum, Heavy Weather, might just
be the best they've ever cut,
and that's saying a lot.
Weather Report emerged in
the early seventies as leaders,
not followers, in the era's jazz-
rock-funk movement. Founders
Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter
have kept the group together
over six years, yet the fire and
insoiration is still there.
hEAVY WEATHER opens with
Birdland, and it takes you away.
Joe Zawinul's flying electric pi-
ano and Shorter's soprano sax
begin the piece, then the song
breaks into a refrain that tops
even The Boogie Woogie Waltz,
from WR's Sweetnighter album.
The following number, A Re-
mark You Make, is a mellow
vehicle for Shorter's smooth-
flowing tenor sax. It's a truly

relaxing contrast from the ex-
ultation of Birdland.
On side two newly added bass
player, Jaco Pastorius strutts
his stuff. After "Rumba Mama,
"a tribal song by percussion-
ists Acuna and Badrena (do
they have first names?), Pas-
torius and the rest of the band
break into "Palladium." The
bassist opens up with an in-
fectuous, precise, and funky so-
lo, then Zawinul and Shorter
join the melee.
Heavy Weather is without
question a together album. The
credits list Zawinul as Producer/
Orchestrator, Pastorius as Co-
Producer, and Shorter as As-
sistant Producer. This is one
group that can exist without a
single leader, and not many
really progressive groups these
days can make that claim.
