Weather Report: Young and Fine, Live (1978)

Here’s my favorite Weather Report line-up, performing live at a live concert in Offenbach, Germany on September 29, 1978. Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius and Peter Erskine doing what the band always seemed to be able to with perfection.

Or as Zawinul described it, “everybody ?solos and nobody solos”.

Jaco does it all here – the slides, the funk, the melodies, the runs, and a bass face or two. Man.
