Weather report's seventh album, released in 1977.It is the band's second album with bassist Jaco Pastorius, but on this one he is a permanent member of the band (He was also present on 2 tracks of 'Black Market' ).Its opening track, 'Birdland', was a significant commercial success, something not typical of instrumental music.A striking feature of 'Birdland' is Pastorius picking harmonics on his fretless bass.Released just as the Jazz-rock or Fusion movement began to run out of steam, this landmark album proved that there was plenty of creative life left in the idiom.180 grams audiophile vinyl.
