Digging mid-1960s Wayne Shorter!

Not that these Wayne Shorter albums are in any way obscure, but I’ve been listening to them intently for the last couple weeks.  Some of these CDs I have had previously, but had just not fully appreciated until now.  Wayne Shorter was a member of the Miles Davis Quintet during the mid to late sixties, and he also put out a number of CDs under his name, often with Herbie Hancock.  A number of the tunes were recorded under both groupings.  “Adam’s Apple” above is from 1966, while “Juju” and “Speak No Evil” were recorded in 1964.

I find the music not too hot, but not overly ‘cool’ either – it strikes a great blend that is somewhat meditative and mysterious.  From this same period, also be sure to hear ‘E.S.P.’ and ‘Miles Smiles’ from the Miles Davis Quintet.
