Check out this article! Prince loves WR!
“Well, I don’t think people learn technique any more. There are no great jazz-fusion bands. I grew up seeing Weather Report, and I don’t see anything remotely like that now. There’s nothing to copy from, because you can’t go and see a band like Weather Report. Al di Meola, the guitar player, he’d just stand in the centre of the stage, soloing, until everyone gives him a standing ovation. Those were the memories that I grew up with and that made me want to play.”
The third song to be premiered off Weather Report’s ‘The Legendary Live Tapes’ is “Continuum/River People”! Listen to it on Relix Magazine
“Fans of the band are in for a serious treat, as few will have heard the band ever play like this before, such is the revelatory quality of this magnificent box set”
