Originally Released in May of 1971, "Weather Report" was the first album by the group of the same name. The album was reissued by Columbia Records in 1992. The album was digitally remastered by Vic Anesini in November 1991 at Sony Music Studios in New York City, and then released again under the Sony International label. The style of music on this album can be described as avant-garde jazz with electric instruments. It continues the style of Miles Davis album "Bitches Brew" on which Zawinul and Shorter played but goes perhaps even further with experimentation.
