Weather Report - Mysterious Traveller (2002) Retail CD
A quarter-century on, Weather Report's music has dated in a way that Miles Davis' best fusion efforts haven't. That's especially true of the albums the band made beginning with Mysterious Traveller (1974), at which point it began looking more to technological advances to further its sound than the creative brain trust of keyboardist Joe Zawinul and saxophonist Wayne Shorter. Shorter largely fades into the background here as Zawinul tests out his battery of ARPs and Moogs and Echoplex-equipped electric piano against a busy battery of percussionists. Still, there's a lot of good music on the albummore…, which is issued here in 24-bit digitally remastered form. "Blackthorn Rose" is a piano (and melodica) and soprano sax duet of lovesome beauty while the phase-shifting "Nubian Sundance" generates excitement through its orchestrated effects, complex rhythmic scheme and simulated crowd explosions. New to the evolving Weather Report is bassist Alphonso Johnson, who lends a funkier and more musical touch than his sacked (and highly overrated) predecessor, Miroslav Vitous. --Lloyd Sachs
