Mysterious Shorter

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Wayne Shorter has written a number of landmark jazz compositions that have found favor among fellow jazz musicians, but Mysterious Shorter marks a rare occasion when an entire CD is devoted to his music. Trumpeter Nicholas Payton heads a strong quintet, including saxophonist Bob Belden who doubles on soprano and tenor saxes, like Shorter, and contributed all of the arrangements, organist Sam Yahel, guitarist John Hart, and drummer Billy Drummond.

Since six of the eight songs are from Shorter's early Blue Note CDs prior to his move toward fusion, the substitution of Yahel's laid-back organ for the more striking sound of the piano softens the sound of Belden's charts, giving them a bit more of a mysterious flavor, especially in the brisk, playful setting of "Footprints."

Chesky's single-point microphone adds to the intimacy of this rewarding session, issued as a hybrid Super Audio disc.
