CDs from this collection began to appear in the sale of one after the other in early 1998. The collection was designed primarily for fans of blues and those wishing to join him in France, Canada and other French-speaking countries, as its literary part was originally made in French and it seems and has not been translated into other languages.
Reissue with DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. A Japanese-only album from Weather Report – recorded early in the group's career, and with some of the same sort of freedoms that Miles Davis was getting on his own double-length dates from Japan! The tracks here are quite stretched out, and often adventurous – showing a marked ability to jam heavily at one moment, get contemplative the next, and continually explore sounds on the frontiers of fusion in the 70s. The group's the "second chapter" Weather Report – with Wayne Shorter on reeds, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Miroslav Vitous on bass, Eric Gravatt on drums, and Dom Um Romao on percussion – and titles include "Orange Lady", "Vertical Invader/Seventh Arrow/TH", "Surucucu/Lost/Early Minor/Direction", and "Tears/Umbrellas".
Bien avant que Cecilia Bartoli n'attire l'attention sur Agostino Steffani avec son disque "Mission", Divox Antiqua et le groupe Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca avaient essayé de le faire avec ce très beau CD consacré à des ouvertures et suites orchestrales tirées d'opéras comme "Henrico Leone" (Hanovre 1688), "Il trionfi del fato" (Hanovre 1695), "Niobe Regina di Tebe" (Münich 1688), et "Amor vien dal destino" (Düsseldorf 1709).
