180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso! Pressed at RTI!

The legendary Weather Report set the music world on fire back in the early seventies with their hypnotic blend of progressive-fused jazz with funk, prog-rock and soul, augmented with the brilliant and skillful musicianship of their superstar founders Wayne Shorter on saxophone and various electronic reeds and the late great Joe Zawinul on a stunning array of keyboards and electronic instruments. Both of these legendary musicians/composers worked with Miles Davis on his classics like Bitches Brew, plus solid tenures with legends like Cannonball Adderley (Zawinul) and Art Blakey (Shorter) all of which would prove to become the huge catalyst for things to come.

Throughout the seventies and beyond, Weather Report’s fine arsenal of recordings would take the band to the top of all the popular music charts. The 1973 fusion classic Sweetnighter would go on to yield one of the biggest albums of their career as it hit the top rungs of the jazz charts, plus major showings in the pop and R&B charts.

No stone is left unturned, as this masterpiece is loaded with hit after hit with smashes like Joe Zawinul’s funk infused Boogie Woogie Waltz, the powerful Manolete by Wayne Shorter and of course Miroslav Vitous’ soulful Will. As one of the most enduring albums in their massive career catalog, Sweetnighter took the fans by storm, forever retaining the title superstars to the Weather Report franchise.

Sweetnighter by Weather Report is released by Friday Music for the very first time on audiophile vinyl. Mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios, this amazing classic truly shines in the audiophile vinyl domain. Pressed at R.T.I., this brilliant masterwork truly resonates as you remember from years ago. To enhance your limited anniversary edition album experience, this first time audiophile vinyl release is also for a very short time being offered in a first time gatefold cover presentation, featuring the original album cover design.
