Musicians
    (1970-1985)
    Born in New York City, New York
    Jazz fusion band
    Original line-up:
    Joe Zawinul (July 7, 1932-September 11, 2007), keyboards
    Wayne Shorter (August 25, 1933- ), saxophone
    Miroslav Vitous (December 6, 1947- ), bass
    Alphonse Mouzon (November 21, 1948- ), drums
    Arito Moreira (August 5, 1941- ), percussion
    Recorded the albums 'Weather Report' (1971), 'I Sing the Body Electric' (1972), 'Sweetnighter' (1973), 'Mysterious Traveller' (1974), 'Tale Spinnin' (1975), 'Black Market' (1976), 'Heavy Weather' (1977), 'Mr. Gone' (1978), '8:30' (1979), 'Night Passage' (1980), 'Weather Report' (1982), 'Procession' (1983), 'Domino Theory' (1984), 'Sportin Life' (1985) and 'This Is This!' (1986)
    During their first eight years, they went through an average of one drummer per year.
    Zawinul would play 10 keyboards onstage.
    Their last album was a disappointing 'contractual obligation' record.
    Following the group's break-up, Zawinul briefly toured with a band he called 'Weather Update.'
    It was a jazz supergroup that more than lived up to expectations.
    They incorporated elements of rock, funk and world music with jazz.
    They abandoned the soloist-accompaniment distinction and instead featured continuous improvisation by each band member.
    They won an unprecedented four straight Album of the Year awards from Down Beat magazine (1974-77).
