This is a quick and dirty collection assembled by Sony to fill a gap in Weather Report
's catalog, a kind of "best of" that took in only the hits and none of the early material. This collection does that. For those who got interested in the band with Birdland
, this set might just well be for you. The Shorter
axis that the group turned on was at its most effective at communicating to the masses here with the aforementioned title cut as well as "Black Market," "A Remark You Made," "The Man in the Green Shirt," "Mysterious Traveler," and "Teen Town." Nearly an hour in length with remastered sound, Jazz Collection
is a bargain for those who are simply looking for the hits.
