Music that lasts,

This review is from: Live At Montreux 1976 [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a superb performance. While some of the so-called jazz-fusion music of the 1970s sounds awfully outdated today, Weather Report never got hit seriously by the passing of time. On the contrary, their albums continue to grow on me.
The line-up presented on this DVD has a special place in my heart, because it was the one I saw one year later at one of my first major concerts. Then, 30 years ago, they blew me away. Now, 30 years later, I realize that their music really still stands. And the performance here is an excellent documentation of this. The interplay between carefully composed intricate patterns and free-form improvisations is stunning. The footage also captures the report between the band members admirably. The concentration and joy in everybody's eyes are a joy to witness.
