"Night Passage" is Weather Report's tenth album, released in 1980. The album brings about a new member to the band, percussionist Robert Thomas Jr. "Night Passage" loses the over-done production layers of some of Weather Report's earlier releases (most notably 1978's "Mr. Gone"). What is lost in layers of overdubs is made up in solo improvisation in the classic jazz tradition.
