4 stars This probably the most popular Weather Report album. This album features some great musicians like the greatest bass player ever Jaco Pastorius, Weather Report founder keyboardist Joe Zawinul , and playing on sax Wayne Shorter. Some great standout tracks are the opener Birdland, a very popular jazz tune by this band. Another fave of mine is A Remark you made, this s ore of a more smooth jazz song with some amazing bass playing by Jaco, an Weather Report classic. Teen Town features some great drumming by Alex Acuna. A couple of my other faves are The juggler and Havona. Havona is the standout track on the album, my favorite track. Weather Report is nothing like Mahavishnu or Return to forever, they are more jazzier and include latin jazz into the mix sometimes. If your looking for a more mellow fusion get this, they are less chaotic then the other jazz fusion giants. A fusion great 4 stars
