100 not out

Today marks my 100th post on this site – surely a moment for a small celebration.

And so what better than an uplifting piece of music featuring some great musicians.

Is it jazz?

Is it jazz rock?

Is it fusion?

Is it any good?

It’s ‘Birdland’ by Weather Report from a live performance in 1978.

Weather Report – Birdland

What I love about this is seeing great musicians like Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Peter Erskine and  Jaco Pastorius putting a top tune through its paces.

There’s no hiding place for the players when everyone listening knows every note and every part of the arrangement inside out.

Hearing the famed rhythm section of Erskine and Pastorius is a particular treat.

Life-affirming.
