Weather Report. For many of us music is the balm that soothes our frazzled souls. While some rely on hot coffee, fresh orange juice or a handful of vitamins, I depend on a blast of sonic tonic to kick off my mornings. Nothing propels me out of bed like the righteous groove of Booker T. No matter what challenges you face, this music is guaranteed to help keep your soul aloft. Ray Peterson, former bass man with the brilliant and funky jazz saxophonist Eddie Harris and author of Jaco Pastorius — Bass Method Hal Leonard , recalled his relationship with the brash, groundbreaking bassist. I jumped in the car and drove over, and he immediately put the record on the turntable. I had been a fan of Weather Report from the Miroslav Vitous days, but the direction Jaco had taken the band in was just astonishing. It all sounded so sophisticated and fresh, with so much vital energy. After Heavy Weather was released, the band exploded and just went to another level, both artistically and in terms of widening their audience.
