Weather Report is a band that adds many creative touches to their music. Jaco Pastorius adds some captivating bass runs and Joe Zawinul contributes plenty of pretty piano passages as well. Wayne Shorter makes some good contributions on several tracks.

Songwise, the lead off track, Birdland, has an extremely memorable melody coupled with awesome instrumental passages and soothing background vocals. It is clearly head and shoulders above the rest.

A Remark You Made is quite pretty and soothing and The Juggler has a delightful instrumental blend. The remaining tracks certainly suffices as good background music with special arrangements. Whereas the melodies aren't super strong, after a while the fine playing makes up for such short commings.
