3 stars "Heavy Weather" is the Weather Report album most people know. That's mainly because Birdland became such a big hit, even sparking The Manhattan Transfer to add words and make it a vocal hit as well.

But to me, the success of the album lies mostly in Jaco Pastorius. His wonderful and groundbreaking bass work is what keeps me interested when I listen to the album. Joe Zawinul also manages to keep his easy listening tendencies under control on this album. You will find none of those synthesized jazz harmonica sounds and smooth jazz textures.

The album still doesn't rank with the great fusion bands of the seventies, but I think record sales, not high art is what they were aiming for.
