5.0 out of 5 stars stunning overview, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complete Albums Collection (Audio CD)
This is an absolute treat for Wayne fans. It's six CDs in total - you get two CDs featuring all his compositions from Weather Report's 15-year career, including highlights such as Lusitanos, Palladium, Harlequin, Three Clowns, Elegant People and the extraordinary Plaza Real. The other four CDs are Native Dancer, Atlantis, Phantom Navigator and Joy Ryder, Wayne's Columbia solo albums which spanned the '70s and '80s. These all come in separate CDs in their original packaging, and all have been remastered beautifully with lots of top end and none of that horrible bass overload that you get with a lot of remasters these days. Extra stuff is kept to a pleasing minimum - there's just a small booklet with full personnel and recording information (though all this appears on each separate CD too). There are no long essays or glowing tributes from ex-sidemen - the music does the talking.

And what incredible music it is. The three '80s solo albums are so far ahead of their time it's almost a joke. Though Wayne uses 'sweeteners' to hook the listener, such as bass vamps, drum machines and vocal-like melodies, these compositions seem to bypass the material and go out into the stratosphere.

A superb package befitting one of the giants of music.

Wayne Shorter is just a key influence to me both as a listener and a musician/composer.

All good. Why do I have to get in so much detail? It was all good. I don't get it.
