Weather Report & Orange Lady

One of my absolute favorite tracks in the world, from Weather Report’s self-titled first album (1971). Sorry to say, the personnel in the photo is way wrong–that is a much later Weather Report lineup with Jaco Pastorius. (I shouldn’t make a big deal of it, to think about the generosity of this fine Youtuber in putting the music up.)

But anyway, the photo for this track should show these guys instead:

From left to right: Alphonse Mouzon (drums), Joe Zawinul (keyboards), Miroslav Vitous (bass), Wayne Shorter (sax), Airto Moreira (percussion).
