Here's what you need to get you going on a dreary Thursday, jazz, jazz and more jazz. Three new live recordings from the Weather Report are on their way.

First up we have a 1975 performance featuring Chester Thompson and Alex Acuna, which is out on 28 March.

In May a 1983 live record carrying the considerable talents of Jose Rossy and Omar Hakim drops, before a 1978 Live at Rockpalast package comes our way later in the year.

More details on each as and when they reach us.
