Weather Report 1972 *Live in Tokyo*

This isn't the Jaco Pastorious Weather Report. This is the extremely abstract, improvising, noodling, atmospheric, weather report of the EARLY seventies with Miroslav Vitous on bass.

This is an extremely, er..., CHALLENGING album to listen to, because you need to really concentrate to hear the interplay when it happens, and the songs are not songs as such but more like frameworks for jamming. But give it a listen, there are some moments of magic. And keep in mind that this is the full concert, with no overdubs, edits or tinkering after the fact.

for diehards only.
