3 stars Heavy Weather is the bands highest selling record, and it isn't difficult to see why. Musically, this isn't nearly as adventurous as the 'Romantic Warriors' or 'Inner Mounting Flames' the of the genre. What we have here some easy listening jazz fusion (though it is a bit closer to jazz than rock). I wouldn't say this is a completely bad thing, but after a few listening it seems as if there should be substance.

'Birdland' is the obvious star of the album, and is considered a jazz standard. 'Teen Town' has some amazing driving bass from Jaco, as does 'Havanah.' The remaining tracks are average at best.

This is a decent album, but far from the best Jazz fusion has to offer.
