I'm surprised the cd is so relatively 'old' (2007) since I thought it was very recent (2011). This music has moments that are ripe for the BBC to use on their programmes (as per Elbow etc) so, obviously, whoever chooses their music doesn't have a young finger-on-the-pulse daughter like wot I have to help them find such excellent gems.

I heard the most successful track from this on a Woman's Hour programme - BBC Radio 4 - and was able to uTube it quickly thereafter to listen to it properly. It's a VERY stylish and professional cd - well worth the listen. I can see why it's been in the charts in Holland longer than Jackson's 'Thriller'!!!

I used to play the LP of this to death when a student back in the '70s and then it got nicked! Recently I stumbled across it and decided I wanted to hear it again and I've been playing it an awful lot since. It's probably Weather Report's overall best cd - although indiv tracks from other cds are more 'inventive'. I just enjoy the exuberance and the quality of the playing - they were so 'together' when they recorded this. Anyway, she doesn't know it yet but I'm going to get my daughter to properly listen to this one soon.......and then she'll be hooked. She already likes 50's style jazz and she's now 23, my age when I discovered Weather Report!!
