Joe Zawinul. By the time of Tale Spinnin, we didnt have a band and we had to make a record, Zawinul remembered, and we tried to get a band together, and we rehearsed all the music with the drummer. Zawinul apparently wasnt satisfied with the tracks, and a chance encounter led to Ndugu Leon Chanclers participation. That was a fluke situation, Chancler recalled in 2001. I was still with Santana at the time, but we were on hiatus. I was in the studio with Jean Luc Ponty and Weather Report was rehearsing and recording next door. Album 1975 6 Songs. Tale Spinnin'. Weather Report. As a result, Tale Spinnin' has a weightier feel than Mysterious Traveller, while continuing the latter's explorations in Latin-spiced electric jazzfunk. Zawinul's pioneering interest in what we now call world music is more in evidence with the African percussion, wordless vocals, and sandy sound effects of Badia, and his synthesizer sophistication is growing along with the available technology.

Tale Spinnin' is the fifth studio album by Weather Report, recorded and released in 1975, featuring the addition of Leon Ndugu Chancler on the drums. Ndugu was recruited after Josef Zawinul heard him play with Carlos Santana. Weather Report was recording next door to Ndugu in the studio, and Chancler was asked to join them for a recording session. That session ended up lasting a week and produced Tale Spinnin'. After the record, Ndugu was asked to join the band as a permanent member, but declined in. Tale Spinnin' was their fifth album and as Hal Miller points out in his sleevenote, is the overlooked gem in the Weather Report back catalogue. As it came between the classic Mysterious Traveller and the arrival of bass hero Jaco Pastorius on the follow up Black Market, maybe that's not too surprising, but it's an album that marks a turning point for the band and more importantly contains some stunning music. While Mysterious Traveller took the juicy funk pileups of Sweetnighter and took them on a journey to some uncharted rain-forested planet, Tale Spinnin' is content to
