Body Electric

I Sing The Body Electric is the latest release from Weather Report, and is another winner from this talented group.

Refreshingly, this was one of those CDs I was able to just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.

I Sing The Body Electric is a pleasantly varied, mix of 7 tracks that are very well written and brilliantly performed songs by these clearly talented musicians. With many of the songs displaying a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Seemingly drawing from what I can only imagine are their own personal experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions of love, and the pain of failed relationships can certainly be heard.

Overall I Sing The Body Electric is outstanding from beginning to end. One of those CDs that after a few listens the songs are just etched into your memory. A must have for the Jazz fan. Really sensational from beginning to end.

While this entire CD is really very good the truly standout tunes are track 4 - Second Sunday In August, track 5 - Medley, and track 7 - Directions.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Unknown Soldier. Outstanding!
