Veteran jazz drummer Peter Erksine has released a album that is a welcome return to the musical world he inhabited as a member of Weather Report(see the review of their new 4 Cd set posted elsewhere on these pages).Peter Erskine's Dr. Um updates the classic fusion sound for the 21st Century.  Erskine has never sounded better and he leads a top notch band of players including keyboardist John Beasley, bassist Janek Gwizdala , saxophonist Bob Sheppard and others. Together the band presents a solid program of good tunes that remind the listener of Weather Report.

Fans of Weather Report and their live recordings will find much to enjoy on a new four CD set of the band. The four discs are sourced from audio board recordings of the band from live performances in 1978, 1980 and 1981.  Weather Report was in arguably its most creative period of the time.
