    Amazing effort by world class players

    Some of my friends who are Shorter aficionados, have claimed this session is over-rated. After listening to "Adam's Apple" in particular, "JuJu" and "Soothsayer", this release would seem a bit mellow, with too little fire in the solos, except that notion is wrong. These tracks tend to be mood pieces which stay with the mood although the playing is actually very dynamic and inovative. Not as "out there" as "Adam's Apple", "Free for all", or "JuJu" and rightfully so. The title track, Witch Hunt, and Infant eyes are three of the finest tracks ever recorded by Shorter and all of the solos are quite amazing. Listen To "Speak no Evil" and how Shorter's solo starts out slow, but it builds and builds, as he seeks out new ways to express himself, all the while maintaining the mood. It is frankly, an awesome acomplishment and performance. The people who downgrade this excellent work are doing so strictly by unfair and false comparative methods. That is comparing apples to oranges. This session stands alone as one of the finest Shorter sessions of all times and it holds a special place on my classic CD shelf. You can't do much better than this. My learned friends could use a tutorial in music appreciation. Over-rated? On the contrary. This is superb.
