Album: Weather Report, Live in Offenbach 1978 (Art of Groove)
Sunday 10 July 2011
This version of Joe Zawinul's ship of state featured Peter Erskine and Jaco Pastorius as the Rhythm Section Which Gives You More, but no ancilliary percussionist.
The group at its most spacious, crisp and cogent then (whatever your view of the showy style of the bassist): two discs, 18 pieces taken taken from every stage of their decade-long history with only three from hit 1977 album Heavy Weather. Extensive in every sense. Wayne Shorter is very involved too, which always helped.
