Greetings all. Has it really been five-and-a-half years since my last blog post here? Yikes. Well, there has been a stream of posts at my Weather Report site, so I encourage you to go there and have a look.
I also want to let you know that my new book, Elegant People: A History of the Band Weather Report, is about to be published. Timed to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Weather Report’s debut album, it is available for pre-order now at Amazon and booksellers everywhere.
More details are at my Weather Report site. I encourage you to check it out here.
Curt – the Elegant People book is EXCELLENT. I purchased it about a month ago and have thoroughly enjoyed it, slowly digesting each chapter. I am a big WR (and JZ) fan but I learned a lot, not just about the various band but also the construction of the music itself. I found myself listening to each album (twice) as I was reading the various chapters of the book. What FANtastic fun! You’ve gone from super-fan to super-author. Well written and well done. No doubt a labor of love was prominent.
