what's the tune starting at 17:06? Right after the "74 miles away" head ends? is it still 74 miles away? It's gotta be Shorter on the sax but the playlist does not seem to jive.

Whatever is starting ( or continuing around 17:06 is very hot.

How is it that "Dr. Honoris" isn't a standard by now?

125th Street Congress is great on the original vinyl, for some reason my copy of the CD sounds poor - maybe they should digitally remaster it.

Saludos desde Chile a Bending Corners, que pone al día a todos los amantes del jazz moderno. Sigan así.
Joe Zawinul fue un gran músico, y su legado jamás se olvidará, ya que fue uno de los grandes exponentes del Jazz Fusión. En cada uno de sus grupos, sea en Weather Report, en la Zawinul Syndicate, o sus trabajos con Miles Davis, demostró el enorme talento que poseía, y, de paso, catapultó a la fama a muchos de los músicos con quienes tocó, en especial a Jaco Pastorius, quizás el mejor bajista eléctrico que haya existido.
Larga vida a ti, Zawinul, que tu música perdurará para siempre y dale saludos a Jaco allá en el cielo.

Just awesome. Haven't heard Zawinul's first album and early WR in 30 years. Brought back such wonderful feelings and memories.

Check out my tribute to Josef and Max at:

BTW, what is that intro you use. I know it is something I listened to in the 70's but I can't figure out what it is???
