Weather Report is the twelfth album from the jazz group Weather Report released in January 1982. The band's first album is also self-titled, causing confusion among consumers and retailers upon its release. It is the final album featuring bass guitarist Jaco Pastorius and drummer Peter Erskine in the rhythm section, bringing to an end what many fans considered the best lineup in the band's history.
Weather Report became the tenth name in the magickal numerology, Shorter sooner rather than later at (hey!) 19 and the ghost of Jaco here at marker 40. Jaco wasn’t merely one of the great fusion bass players; he was one of the great fusion players period. By drawing all of Jaco’s compositions onto a single disc, The Jaco Years is speculative history. Weather Report never released an album like this, and wouldn’t make the case that Mr. Gone or Night Passage (each contributing two tracks) represent the best of Weather Report. As you might expect, This is Jazz/10 has better Weather, while This Is Jazz/40 serves as a collection of songs in consideration of Jaco’s canonization.
Weather Report is the debut studio album by American jazz-fusion band Weather Report, released in May 12, 1971 by Columbia Records. The album was reissued by Sony and digitally remastered by Vic Anesini in November 1991 at Sony Music Studios in New York City. Writing on the back sleeve of the album, Clive Davis, the then president of Columbia Records, opines: "There have always been two kinds of musicians-those who create and those who imitate. Weather Report creates.
