This is obscenely smooth. It’s like coating your speakers with satin and velvet. ( Don’t do that – it will invalidate your warranty…)

First, I love a good Rhodes and sax combo. The intense yet calm passion, with the ARP 2600 synth adding some retro-futuristic flavour.

But then again, there are very few bass players like Jaco Pastorius. He makes the bass sing, just as much part of the melodic tapestry as the other instruments. It’s just captivating.

You can find this lush nugget of beauty on 1977’s Weather Report.
