Weather Report

Z IS COMING SOON! BE SURE TO SEND IN YOUR ARTIST/GROUP SUGGESTIONS FOR POTD, ROUND 2!

I don’t really like Weather Report, so all I’ll say about them is Wayne Shorter probably picked the name so he and the group would appear next to each other on lists like these. On the other hand: Quincy Jones did a hip-hop version of “Birdland” (featuring vocals from both Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald, because … huh?) that was Daveon’s favorite song for a while, so credit to Weather Report for coming up with the tune in the first place.
