Weather Report - Live Under The Sky '83 - CD2 / LP2 Formats
This was to be the last incarnation of the legendary Weather Report. Publicity shots at the time show Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter opening a large packing case to reveal their new rhythm section. Despite the departure of Jaco Pastorius and Peter Erskine the leaders are smiling broadly; once again they have replaced the irreplaceable. Night by night, throughout the long 1983 tour documented here, drummer Omar Hakim and bassist Victor Bailey would prove themselves the equals of their predecessors and forge a powerful ensemble sound. The set list includes tunes from Night Passage (1980), Procession (1983) and Domino Theory (1984) plus a medley of past glories (Black Market / Badia / A Remark You Made) and their breakout hit Birdland. Performed at Yomiuri Land Open Theatre East, Inagi, Japan on July 29th 1983 and broadcast on NHK radio.
