1058 Weather Report - Cucumber Slumber

This Jazz Fusion piece is one of my favourites from the band. The grooving and bouncy rhythm along with Alphonso Johnson's funk bass line lays out a perfect canvas for Joe Zawinul and company to paint a beautiful musical landscape.
I absolutely love their entire '74 Mysterious Traveler album. It is a very nice record to just start and let play and sometime even let it repeat multiple times; it makes excellent working music.

Here is the studio version on YouTube.


My song pick a year ago today: ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'
My song pick two years ago today: Eric Clapton - After Midnight
