"Weather Report" (1982) is the eleventh album from the jazz group
Weather Report. The band's first album is also self titled, causing confusion among consumers and retailers upon its release. It is the final album featuring Jaco Pastorius and Peter Erskine in the rhythm section of Weather Report bringing to an end what many fans considered the best lineup in the band's history.
The center piece of the album is the three part "N.Y.C." The three movement suite starts with "41st Parallel", a bouncing groove showing off Erskine's unique touch on the drums. The second movement, "The Dance", is a more traditional swing feel, but with Zawinul's synthesiser orchestration heavily laid on top. The final movement, "Crazy About Jazz", is a cordial ending that fits its name in every way.
