  • Recorded at Devonshire Sound, North Hollywood, California between February and March 1974. Includes liner notes by Hal Miller.
  • One of Weather Report's most varied and exciting records, overflowing with daring keyboard chops, saucy, multi-ethnic rhythms, molten-hot textures and boundless energy. By this point, Zawinul was becoming the elder statesman of fusion, his mastery of his synth arsenal unparalleled by anyone save Chick Corea. But where Corea opted for the far reaches of Hubbard space, Zawinul rooted himself in virtual rainforests, where teeming exotic aggregates of organic life possessed their own unique grooves.
  • On "Nubian Sundance," Zawinul's keyboards cut colorful swathes through dense jungle funk bottomed out by Ishmael Wilburn's drums and Miroslav Vitous' serpentine basslines. MYSTERIOUS TRAVELLER also sports the Weather Report standard "Cucumber Slumber," rippling curbside funk that finds Shorter waxing rhapsodically over Alphonso Johnson's booty-quiverin' bottom end. Superfine struts from the sultans of fusion swing.
