Sweetnighter is the third studio album by American jazz fusion band Weather Report, released by Columbia Records in 1973. The group had recorded the songs in a five-day stretch during February of the same year. It was to be the last album to feature founding member Miroslav Vitouš as the primary bassist

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.

It is the groove that rules this mesmerizing album, leading off with the irresistible 3/4 marathon deceptively tagged as the "Boogie Woogie Waltz" and proceeding through a variety of Latin-grounded hip-shakers.

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.

Sweetnighter is Weather Report at their peak! This and Mysterious Traveller are their finest work. album at the Philadelphia jazz festival at the Spectrum in PA. 2 months ago. Reminds me a lot of the headhunters album, which came out in the same year. 3 months ago. This album is very good. But the bass sound is so fragile compared to the Jaco Pastorius style. So strange to see how there is a before and an after Pastorius in bass sound.
