WAYNE SHORTER picture
Wayne Shorter (born August 25, 1933) is an American jazz composer and saxophonist. Shorter has recorded dozens of albums as a leader, and appeared on dozens more with others. Many of his compositions have become standards.

Shorter was born in Newark, New Jersey, and attended Newark Arts High School. He was encouraged by his father to take up the saxophone as a teenager (his brother Alan became a trumpeter). After graduating from New York University in 1956 Shorter spent two years in the US Army, during which time he played briefly with Horace Silver, and after his discharge from the army with Maynard Ferguson.

In 1959 Shorter joined Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers. He stayed with Blakey for five years, and eventually became musical director for the group. In 1964, Miles Davis persuaded Shorter to leave Blakey and join the Miles Davis Quintet alongside Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and

WAYNE SHORTER Night Dreamer

Album · 1964 · Hard Bop
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
js
“Night Dreamer” is an album that finds Wayne Shorter in a state of transition as he was still rooted in the hard bop style that started his career, but also starting to lean toward the more abstract style that will serve for the greater part of his remaining career. It’s a talented, and somewhat unusual ensemble that Shorter has assembled here. McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones, at that time, were mostly known for their famous work with Coltrane, but in 1964, when this album was recorded, Tyner and Jones were on the verge of splitting from Coltrane’s increasingly experimental approach to jazz. Also on hand is trumpeter Lee Morgan, who would go on to be the ‘go to’ trumpeter for many Blue Note soul jazz and bluesy hard bop recordings. The powerhouse grooving bass of Reggie Workman rounds out this rather eclectic, but very energetic and creative crew.

This is very much a Wayne Shorter date, he supplies all the compositions, except for one, and takes the lion share of the solo space as well. If you are not familiar with this phase of Wayne’s career, then you are in for a treat. The young Shorter was much more exuberant and playful as he proclaimed his bluesy melodic lines laced with unexpected, and sometimes odd asides. Shorter’s early sound had a big Coltrane influence, but Wayne’s playing was a little less busy and based more in the blues. There are also occasional flurries of notes that mirror the ‘free‘ players, and off-the -wall humorous phrases that may remind some of Dolphy. Some of you may come away from this recording preferring the style of the young Wayne Shorter, there is a lot to like here.

Wayne’s back up band on “Night Dreamer” is an excellent bunch, particularly McCoy Tyner, who sounds more happy and playful than when he is working with the always earnest John Coltrane. Another big plus is the recorded sound, there is a reason why people like these old Blue Note recordings, and that reason is the recording work of Rudy van Gelder. All of the tracks on here are top notch, but possibly the best track honor goes to the one ballad, The beautiful “Virgo”. Shorter is one of the most gifted melodic writers ever in the world of jazz, and his way with interesting harmonies also sets him apart. All of that is on display on “Virgo”, a tune that will become one of his better known.

WAYNE SHORTER Speak No Evil

Album · 1966 · Post Bop
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
js
Although Wayne Shorter had been involved in some great music since the beginning of his career, with his 1965 release, “Speak No Evil”, he really began to show his remarkable gifts as a composer. About half of this album is made up of the sort of inovative hard bop that Wayne was already known for, while the rest of the album reveals an inventive composer who writes long winding melodies, that defy typical patterns, backed by lush harmonic changes that merge modern jazz with the advanced harmonies of modern concert hall composers. Shorter’s compositional ideas have been some of the most influential in modern jazz, yet very few can duplicate the high originality of his work.

In many ways, “Speak No Evil” can be seen as a warm up to the post bop masterpieces, such as “Nefertiti” and “Sorcerer”, that Wayne will create over the next few years with Miles Davis. With Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter on board for “Speak”, most of Miles’ future band is already here working out the ideas that they will bring to Miles’ second great quintet. Certainly Shorter’s more experimental compositions bring out some very creative playing from Herbie Hancock as well. To fans of Miles’ second quintet, its interesting to hear his future side men present the musical seeds that they will bring to maturity later with Miles.

Its also interesting to hear Shorter’s tenor playing back in these early days of his career. Overall his playing on “Speak”, as well as most of his earlier albums, is stronger, busier and a bit bluesier than the more sparse and abstract style he would develop later in his career. On the hard bop tunes he has a big full sound reminiscent of Coltrane, but also with a few wacky melodic leaps that show Shorter had been appreciating. Erik Dolphy as well. Possibly the best cuts though are the more introspective “Dance Cadaverous” and “Infant Eyes”, where Herbie and Wayne have the time and room to really stretch things out.

An early Shorter solo album, and I believe the second one (of a long series) on the Blue Note label, Juju is also one of my fave, not least because of the outstanding contribution of Tyner and his usual-suspect Trane accomplice Elvin on the drums and Workman on bass. Ok, don’t think I’m jumping on my Trane train yet, because Shorter is the star, and his compositions are one of the best he’s ever done, and his stellar playing shines throughout the album’s six tracks, but inevitably the Trane shadow is lurking all over Juju.

What a pleasure it is to hear the Coltrane crew without Trane in the opening title, even if it’s almost impossible not to think of the master himself, mainly because of the instantly recognizable Tyner piano and a slight raga feel. Deluge is quieter pedestrian tempo that doesn’t match its predecessor in terms of adventure. The even slower House of Jade is somehow a bit of a bore, despite an excellent but slightly predictable end. On the flipside’s Mahjong, Elvin opens alone, but is soon joined by Tyner’s tense piano line and Shorter’s wailing sax to give the whole thing a slightly exotic-raga touch and turns out to be the album’s best moment. The following up-beat Yes Or No present a slight bop feel, but voids falling in the usual trap. The bluesy-bop closer 12 More Bars is not exactly a foot-stomper, but fits correctly the album’s overall tone.

The remaster reissue feature alternate takes (both shorter ;o))) of the title track and the Jade track, but it’s not like they are a major selling point. Compared with many of his subsequent releases such as Speak No Evil or Schizophrenia, this is a far more adventurous album, even if Wayne will work again with Tyner in Soothsayer, but not to the same affect. As for Juju, it’s a little sad that the tracks following the lead-of song on each side of the album don’t really pick up where they left off. Good early album, getting my personal nod, probably because of the Trane-gang connection.

Most experts agree that 1959 was one hell of a year in jazz music, with many going as far as to say that it was the finest year that the genre would ever see. With legends like Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, and many others releasing some of the best albums in their careers over this twelve month span, it's difficult to argue with that statement. One of the slightly more forgotten, but still renowned, releases from this year is the debut from saxophone great Wayne Shorter. Introducing Wayne Shorter is the tenor saxophonist's first effort as a band leader, with greats like Lee Morgan (trumpet), Paul Chambers (bass), Wynton Kelly (piano), and Jimmy Cobb (drums) also on board. This tight lineup delivers six tunes of quality hard bop on this LP, and while I don't think it possesses the same level of greatness as other classics from 1959, this is still a highly enjoyable performance from some of the finest in jazz.

The music you'll find on Introducing Wayne Shorter is pretty standard hard bop for the time. Piano, bass, and hard-hitting drums lay a strong foundation for extended soloing, with each band member given plenty of opportunities to show off their technical skills. Jimmy Cobb's tasteful yet powerful drumming is what immediately draws my attention, and even though all eyes are typically on the soloist, his drumming is simply memorizing. That's not to discount the other musicians, though, as every one of them delivers plenty of great solos throughout the duration of the LP. While I wouldn't call the songwriting here particularly excellent, everything is solid from beginning to end - the nearly ten minute "Down In The Depths" is probably my favorite track if I had to pick one.

Though Introducing Wayne Shorter isn't the most original or captivating hard bop album from the late fifties', it's still an impressive debut from one of saxophone's greatest talents. The impressive technical capabilities of the quintet parred by an equally excellent production makes this a recommendable purchase for all fans of hard bop. I'd say 3.5 stars are deserved for this solid effort.

Taking a short break from the very busy schedule of Weather Report,, Shorter finally indulged in his fascination for Brazilian rhythms and melodies and worked with his idol Milton Nascimento in the present album, his first solo work for the Columbia label. One might think that this album might be quite a departure to what Wayne was doing in WR, but in the light of the coming Black Market and Heavy Weather albums, this finds its place quite easy in Shorter’s musical evolution. Helped out by Herbie and McDaniel, Wayne plunges in the Brazilian universe, namely with Milton (who gets a co-credit in the album’s title), the unavoidable Airto, the lesser–known (outside Brazil anyway) Tiso, Silva and Amaro. The album comes with a fairly ugly (IMHO) artwork that’s supposed to evoke the Brazilian tropics, but it’s quite kitsch.

Opening not so successfully on the mainstream-ish Ponta De Areia, with its annoying child-like vocals, ND recuperates itself on the uninventive, but sensual Beauty & Beast, but plunges into trashy soft-porn with Milton’s Tarde, a villainous syrupy slow dance track with crooner vocals. The following Miracle is not one, but obviously is a typical Brazilian folk track from Milton, but the charms do not operate on this scribbler. Shorter’s ballad Diana is a sleep-inducing lullaby. Lonely afternoons is one of the better Milton compositions of the present, but still isn’t sticking out from the pack. Actually, only Shorter’s Ana Maria (where Herbie finally shines), and the excellent and lengthier Milton-penned thoughtful Lilia (a 5/4 groove and Herbie on Rhodes and Hammond) save the album from being rather tedious and unessential (IMHO). Herbie’s Joanna (geeeeezzzz, these guys were obsessed or in serious need;o))) is also quite fine.

Definitely not my kind of album, but ND has certainly been quite influential for the upcoming wave of jazzers, including Metheny or Horta. Definitely an album that finishes in a much better fashion than it started, but to be honest, ND strikes more the target once the singers shut up (sorry Milton).
