Oh, yeah, if you listen to the drum beat on '125th Street Congress' that beat is the original hip-hop beat. I played that years before it was recorded.

Sweetnighter is a music studio album recording by WEATHER REPORT (Jazz ive Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Sweetnighter Legacy 2009.

Heavy Weather is the eighth album by Weather Report, released in 1977 through Columbia Records. The release originally sold about 500,000 copies; it would prove to be the band's most commercially successful album.

Other tracks were reminiscent of Weather Report’s previous albums, making Sweetnighter a transition from the band’s first phase to what one might call its mature phase. Zawinul has since spoken often of the motivations behind this change. I had written a few pieces like ‘Boogie Woogie Waltz’ and ‘125th Street Congress’ for the third album which required a little more versatility. Eric Grávátt was not the drummer on these tunes; not that he couldn’t have done it, but with him it was a mental thing. He just didn’t have his heart in it.

1973’s Sweetnighter was a transitional album for Weather Report, as the formerly pensive and open-ended outfit mutated into a fearsome funk-jazz juggernaut. Propelled by the percussive atmospherics of Muruga Booker and Dom Um Romao and the greasy keyboard stylings of Joe Zawinul, songs like Boogie Woogie Waltz and 125th Street Congress have as much in common with Earth, Wind & Fire and Isaac Hayes as they do with Miles Davis. The music’s restless, metamorphic tone mirrors the changes occurring within the group. Zawinul was taking more control, giving Wayne Shorter less to do. Original bassist Miroslav Vitous only appears on half the album and would soon be exiled entirely. Vitous’ Will is one of the last great songs from the original Weather Report lineup.

Exclusively for Prime members.

Sweetnighter is a strong fusion album from Weather Report which offers a notable improvement over its predecessor, I Sing the Body Electric. It's founder member Miroslav Vitous' last album with the group, and his bass playing is a particular highlight, laying down a funk-powered foundation over which the rest of the instrumentalists strut their stuff in dynamite fashion. This approach is particularly effective in the two longer songs on the album, 125th Street Congress and Boogie Woogie Waltz, which are surely highlight's of the group's repertoire
