Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Although saxophonist Wayne Shorter and keyboardist Joe Zawinul were the creative linchpins of Weather Report, the band’s evolution can be traced through its bass players. With their fourth album, Mysterious Traveller, Weather Report introduced their first electric bassist, Alphonso Johnson. Although he’s been overshadowed by the work of his brilliant replacement, Jaco Pastorius, Johnson was a superb player himself, and his contributions to the album contribute to its status as a fusion masterpiece. The album shifts between epic numbers (“Nubian Sundance,” “Mysterious Traveller”) lyrical performances (“Blackthorn Rose," “Jungle Book”) and funky workouts (“Cucumber ...

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Although saxophonist Wayne Shorter and keyboardist Joe Zawinul were the creative linchpins of Weather Report, the band’s evolution can be traced through its bass players. With their fourth album, Mysterious Traveller, Weather Report introduced their first electric bassist, Alphonso Johnson. Although he’s been overshadowed by the work of his brilliant replacement, Jaco Pastorius, Johnson was a superb player himself, and his contributions to the album contribute to its status as a fusion masterpiece. The album shifts between epic numbers (“Nubian Sundance,” “Mysterious Traveller”) lyrical performances (“Blackthorn Rose," “Jungle Book”) and funky workouts (“Cucumber Slumber”) that lend the work variety and drama. Shorter and Zawinul’s playing and compositions are characteristically inspired, (Zawinul’s fascination with world music showing itself with increasing force), while Johnson gives the music a new vibrancy. If you tend to think of Weather Report as virtually beginning with Pastorious, this is a fine place to reinvestigate their history.
All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Weather Report's fourth recording finds Wayne Shorter on soprano and tenor taking a lesser role as Joe Zawinul begins to really dominate the group's sound. Most selections also include bassist Alphonso Johnson and drummer Ishmael Wilburn although the personnel shifts from track to track. "Nubian Sundance" adds several vocalists while "Blackthorn Rose" is a Shorter-Zawinul duet. Overall the music is pretty stimulating and sometimes adventurous; high-quality fusion from 1974.

    I Also Recommend:

    Great Fusion-Jazz record by perhaps the best Fusion-Jazz group of all time.

    This is great pre-Jaco Album. The sounds on this disc are dated, but very intresting. The track swing hard and Wayne Shorter as always shines thru the layered sounds. Highly recommended.
