Remembering Weather Report
- a new album from bassist Miroslav Vitous was released on July 7th. According to Nate Chinen of the New York Times, Vitous brings a rigorous sense of proportion to this album, exploring free-form terrain with the stateliest kind of boldness" and he calls it a severely elegant album."
Vitous was one of the founders of Weather Report and helped to shape its early (and revolutionary) mix of enigmatic, free-flowing compositions and high-level improvisational dialogues, in which all the instruments enjoyed parity. It is this formative period that Miroslav salutes with his all-acoustic band and some phenomenal playing.
