Weather Report - Live In Berlin 1971 : 2 x vinyl lps (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

This is an amazing, amazing set that has long been known, but was never released until now and this is 100% legitimate and off the NDR masters.
This is Weather Report in their first few months and with their original lineup plus three very special and great guests, live, in a TV studio. Sadly they didn’t include a DVD, but the music is what matters. Hugely recommended!!

Joe Zawinul – electric piano, piano
Wayne Shorter – tenor sax, soprano sax
Miroslav Vitouš – bass
Alphonse Mouzon – drums
Dom Um Romão – percussion
Eje Thelin – trombone
Alan Skidmore – flute, soprano sax, tenor sax
John Surman – soprano sax, bass clarinet, baritone sax

"Weather Report at the very beginning of their rich, colorful career. Recorded in Berlin on September 3, 1971, the performance brings unbridled fusion born from the experiences of playing with Miles Davis and elevated to an entirely new level. A sensational must-have for every enthusiast of the genre.
Weather Report is a jazz-rock icon. Led by keyboardist Joe Zawinul, the group left a lasting mark on music history with their revolutionary sound and the creativity of the musicians who formed it. In their work, they combined jazz finesse, rock power, and Latin energy, etching their memory in the minds of listeners worldwide with the rhythmic “Birdland” from the album Heavy Weather (1977). However, before ascending the charts, they broke conventions and fusion boundaries at the outset of their career. “Live in Berlin 1971” is a captivating snapshot of that period. Elaborate, free-flowing forms filled with solo and collective improvisations – including “Directions,” performed by Zawinul alongside Miles Davis, and “Moto Grosso Feio” from Wayne Shorter’s solo album of the same name.
The concert features three special guests: Alan Skidmore, Eje Thelin, and John Surman, whose energetic solos complement the cascades of Zawinul’s Fender Rhodes and Shorter’s powerful saxophone cadences. The sound and energy of that evening are hard to find elsewhere."
