'Celebrating the Music of WEATHER REPORT'
TELARC SACD  63473 
TT:  58:30 
(5.1 channel)
As Telarc describes this CD, they are marking the 30th anniversary of this visionary supergroup's formation with this release featuring updated arrangements, creative new sounds and a superlative lineup, with a jazz-funk Hall of Fame that includes Weather Report alumni Victor Bailey and Omar Hakim.  The multi channels are effectively used - Telarc at its best, although the program should have been longer.
'Soul on Jazz'

Jazz enthusiasts will welcome this CD, produced by Bob Belden, which features outstanding jazz and contemporary jazz musicians in a program that includes several remakes (Nature Boy / Ruby, My Dear) as well as some brand new pieces.  Great sound from Telarc - the only problem again being that the program is short.
