A commercial, critical, and artistic triumph, Heavy Weather provided fusion jazz with a lightning bolt of inspiration just as it seemed to be running out of ideas. Keyboardist Joe Zawinul plays the role of architect, manning a number of electric keyboards and synthesizers throughout, but all of the musicians get a chance to shine. Jaco Pastorius’ distinctive bass tones are crucial, and Wayne Shorter’s saxophone provides a balanced, calculated third melodic voice. A thoroughly joyous affair.
