What we have here is another good album from Weather Report. I enjoy on this release very much Manolete and Adios (the same fusion style pioneered by Miles Davis). Important to mention is that the band had a change in direction here (e.g. on 125th Street congress but also on the Boogie Woogie Waltz). The sound is more in a funky/groove manner which is some different than the other Weather Report releases before this one. We have two new musicians here on bass and drums which indicates Joe Zawinul tendencies to adopt a different rhythmic style. It is maybe simply the need of the musicians to experiment a different style which may lead to acceptance or not depending on everybody's experience and preferences.

One thing is for sure. With this release Weather Report established themselves as one of the most important band in the fusion genre from the '70.
