    Going by memory-

    Jaco & Joni:
    Don Juan's Reckless Daughter
    Shadows & Light(Live 2-cd set; there's even a DVD/VHS available, too).

    All, IMO, are essential. ;)
    All, IMO, are prime examples of simpatico between Jaco & Joni.
    ...I wouldn't say they're of the "simple" variety, either. But that's me. ;)

    When Madonna did Saturday Night Live right after she hooked up with Victor & Omar Hakim, the groove was killer!! Watch for the reruns on Comedy Central.

    For me, Don Juan's Reckless Daughter is an album that i listen to over and over again and never get sick of.

    I remember seeing that on its first run & I almost s*** a brick! Dammit, Weather Report's rhythm section, LIVE on TV, backing up Madonna?!
    "Fever" was the tune...I went out that Sunday & bought the album & was I disappointed(sequenced, no Omar/Bailey, either).

    I agree - although there are some "simple lines" there - everything is wonderful. I often think people who don't "get" Jaco should listen to these albums first, as a lot of the time it is just Joni and Jaco with understated drums/percussion. The variety of sounds and feels that Jaco creates is incredible - he often sounds like a whole orchestra and it is an incredible contrast if you listen to later Joni albums - how dull they sound in comparison, although the songs are still great.

    I love the outro of Paprika Plains.......after John Gurein hits the toms and the band just explodes!

    I recall reading in a Victor Bailey intervew (maybe in the Fender Bass magazine) that Madonna used to admonish Victor and Omar for tacking on bits of Weather Report tunes to her songs.

    I think the exact words, as told by Victor, she said were, "...and don't play any of that Weather Report s... at the end of my songs!".

    What a hoot.

    I wonder if the fans would have enjoyed it or not. I bet they would have enjoyed it.
