Weather Report's The Legendary Live Tapes features four discs of sensational unreleased performances all "completely, totally, unapologetically and insanely live" recorded by the legendary jazz group from 1978 to 1981. Formed by onetime Miles Davis sidemen Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter in 1970, Weather Report defied categorization in the 15 years they recorded together. The entire album is presented-the two remaining tracks from that album, Pastorius' Three Views of a Secret and Zawinul's Forlorn, can be found on disc . The band attacks this material with fierce abandon, stretching far beyond the time constraints of the original recordings. Check out the epic 17 minute version of Madagascar.

First, the four-disc Weather Report box set The Legendary Live Tapes 1978-1981 is a refreshing reminder of just what a juggernaut not only Pastorius, but the entire group was during his tenure, with live material culled from its 1978 tour as a quartet-the only time the group would do so in a smaller configuration, with co-founders Joe Zawinul an. And it was often the end of the day' session, because Joe would be cruelly dismissive. I kind of wanted to say to Jaco, 'Let's not call Joe today.

Recorded completely, totally, unapologetically and insanely live during Weather Report’s mythic concert heydays from 1978-1981, The Legendary Live Tapes showcases the group’s classic line-up of Joe Zawinul (keyboards), Wayne Shorter (saxophone), Jaco Pastorius (electric bass), Peter Erskine (drums) and Robert Thomas, J. Performance high-points from these quartet and quintet lineups are chronicled in Weather Report: The Legendary Live Tapes: 1978-1981 and have been sourced from never-before-heard (outside the band) soundboard tapes recorded by Weather Report’s longtime mixing engineer Brian Risner, and bootleg recordings from the audience.

Great LIVE renditions from their 3 albums. Would love to hear more, there must be more in the vaults. Have a cassette with some VPRO recordings. Should digitize that stuff sooner the better.
