Groundbreaking electronic jazz-rock-funk ensemble Weather Report is poised to release a monumental boxed set, The Legendary Live Tapes: 1978-1981, which contains four discs of previously unreleased live concert performances showcasing the sounds that continue to influence generations of bands to the present.

The set will be available November 20, and features the group’s classic line-up of Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Peter Erskine, and Robert Thomas, Jr. at the peak of their collective powers.

Yahoo Music is excited to premiere one of these tracks, “A Remark You Made,” for fans to discover and enjoy.

Weather Report was originally formed in 1970 by Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter. An active ensemble for 16 years, the group moved across a variety genres, blending free jazz with tightly structured compositions, introducing elements of rock and funk and electronica into a multicultural world music that defied precedent and categorization. Rather than attempt to recreate the ebb and flow of a Weather Report set list of the era, The Legendary Live Tapes presents a variety of key individual performances, each of them capturing the unique and dazzling musical directions Weather Report was capable of achieving.
