"Our national obsession with the weather should really be an obsession with the jet stream." So argues this brilliantly informative documentary as it explains the workings of the high-altitude ribbon of air that blows around the northern hemisphere at hurricane speeds. First observed by US bomber pilots in the Second World War, "the jet" is the engine of the atmosphere: it makes flights from America to Europe quicker (if pilots latch onto it, they can get a 200mph tailwind), but it also cranks up our weather events - last year's floods were partly caused by "an extremely sluggish jet".

This disc is a bit unusual in a few ways. Vibraphonist Dave Pike sticks here exclusively to the marimba, while pianist Herbie Hancock is heard throughout on organ, an instrument he rarely played again. The band also includes two trumpeters (most notably Clark Terry who has a few short solos) and a rhythm section with guitarist Billy Butler. Most of the music consists of obscurities and is open to the influences of the boogaloo and pop rhythms of the era; highlights include Hancock's "Blind Man, Blind Man," "Sunny" and "Devilette." An interesting effort.
