CD Reviews

Fly by Night
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 02/27/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The live album - seven of the eight numbers were performed in front of 250 fans for each of the four gigs over two evenings at The Complex studios, Los Angeles - is Weather Report at the peak of its performance power.

The most famous lineup - Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Peter Erskine, percussionist Robert Thomas, Jr. - with Jaco's iconic composition, Three Views of a Secret, being the surprising standout. Zawinul penned four numbers, Shorter has one and there is a neat cover of Duke Ellington's Rockin' in Rhythm. An eighth track - Madagascar - was recorded while on a 1980 tour of Japan.

The band was playing in larger venues and had truly crossed-over into a rock audience, but it seems as if Zawinul seized control of the train to deliver a jazz recording worthy for inclusion with the releases of the early-1970s.

There is an excitement to the music that seems to be attempting to light a clear path for jazz in the 1980s. That it quickly became a trail lightly treaded upon simply shows that brilliance can be a lonely traveler."
As good as music gets

"The power and passion of this music is undeniable. Weather Report was always noted for their compositions, and this album contains five of the band's strongest tunes: "Night Passage", "Dream Clock", "Fast City", Jaco Pastorius' beautiful "Three Views of A Secret" and the band's magnum opus, "Madagascar." From a whisper to a roar, this is an intensely dynamic album---be careful not to play it too loud! Some of the synth sounds have dated a bit, but this remains music of incredible sophisication and soulfulness, and the grooves---particularly on "Madagascar"---are out of this world."
