Weather Report 8:30 Vinyl Record - Holland Import
Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. 8:30 is the tenth and first live album by the Jazz Fusion group Weather Report. It was recorded live except for tracks 10-13, which were studio recorded. The album, which won a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Fusion Performance, takes it's name from the band's habit of starting their performance at 8:30 pm. at the time of the tour, the band were a four piece who would take the stage continuously for around two and a half hours, each of the members taking a solo spot to give not just a virtuoso performance, but to give the others a break. Wayne Shorter sometimes plays percussion instead of saxophone on stage, and on one of the studio tracks, the calypso inspired 'Brown Street', Joe Zawinul's son Erich plays percussion along with Erskine and Pastorius. The 8:30 tour saw Weather Report at the height of their commercial success, and the playlist leant heavily on the recent successes, 'Black Market', 'Birdland' and 'Teen Town'. Jaco Pastorius played a notable solo, 'Slang', which melded a multi-part bass solo using tape loops, leading into references to 'Third Stone from the Sun' by Jimi Hendrix, 'Portrait of Tracy' from his own solo work, then onto '(The Hills are Alive with) the Sound of Music'. He finished off playing his bass with it's own strap.
