This unique double album is the product of the fertile mind of veteran American jazz drummer Gerry Gibbs. The first disc is a tribute to Weather Report, but rather than merely offer lukewarm cover versions, Gibbs reimagines the Weather Report material from the perspective of an acoustic piano-led trio. Gibbs cranks up the creative juices on the second disc, a set of originals ranging from flamenco to pulse-quickening funk, calypso, gospel, Latin jazz, R&B and plenty of all-out swing. Weather or Not is the most audacious and fully-realized project from Gibbs to date, an early crowning achievement from a restless spirit and a triumphant, indefatigable artist.
