5.0 out of 5 stars Wayne Shorter- jazz's finest tenor saxophonist, 30 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Speak No Evil (Audio CD)
On Speak no Evil Wayne Shorter manages to reach a level of brilliance that he never even achieved with the great Miles Davis Quintet of the late '60s. Compositionally it is a fantastic album with the open track witch hunt and the title track being particular gems.
There is beauty and joy to this album that comes from Shorter himself. He has a far less serious and intense style than John Coltrane, whom comparisons are inevitably drawn with, which makes his work far less effort to listen to. The other collaborators are more than competant in their perfomances as well with the expert touch of Herbie Hancock on the piano and the bewitching tones of Freddie Hubbard on trumpet blending well.
For me this is one of the classic jazz albums, and it proves the lack of justice in the world when John Coltrane is remembered more fondly by the public than the master behind this work.
