Weather Report: ‘Black Market/Scarlet Woman’

28 May 2014 — Jazz on the Tube

Stadthalle Offenbach, Offenbach am Main, Germany, 1978

One of these songs is the title track off of Weather Report’s “Black Market.” That album was the the first of the band’s to feature new bass player Jaco Pastorius. Many critics characterize Weather Report as one of the earliest innovators in jazz fusion. Dozens of musicians’ participation in the group over a decade and a half ensured its survival, under the leadership of Joe Zawinul.

Personnel: Joe Zawinul, keyboard; Wayne Shorter, saxophone; Peter Erskine, drums; Dom Um Romao, percussion; Jaco Pastorius, bass
