Recorded in 1965 but not released until 1980, Et Cetera holds its own against the flurry of albums Wayne Shorter released during the mid-‘60s, a time when he was at the peak of his powers.

Wayne Shorter is an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Many of Shorter's compositions have become jazz standards, and his output has earned worldwide recognition, critical praise and various commendations, including 10 Grammy Awards. Shorter first came to wide prominence in the late 1950s as a member of, and eventually primary composer for, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. In the 1960s, he went on to join Miles Davis's Second Great Quintet, and from there he co-founded the jazz fusion band Weather Report. He has recorded over 20 albums as a bandleader. The New York Times has described Shorter as "probably jazz's greatest living small-group composer and a contender for greatest living improviser".

Although one can't lose with any of Shorter's classic Blue Note titles from the '60s, this sampler is perfect for newcomers just wanting to get their feet wet. Covering the period 1964-1969, the nine tracks include highlights from Night Dreamer ( "Virgo" ), Speak No Evil (the title track and "Infant Eyes" ), and Adam's Apple ( "Footprints" ). There's also the title cut from Juju (replete with a sparkling Elvin Jones solo) and the superb "Lost" off of The Soothsayer. With nice additions from Schizophrenia and the fusion-leaning Super Nova, that just leaves the long-in-the-vaults Etc. (one of the saxophonist's best) and All Seeing Eye to account for. With more than enough Shorter material to dive into, and top hard bop contributions from the likes of Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, James Spaulding, and Joe Chambers, these oversights shouldn't pose any great dilemmas. Besides, it shouldn't be long before Shorter's entire Blue Note catalog sits snugly on your shelves.

Reissue. Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and 24bit remastering. Includes an alternate take of "Witch Hunt" and a track for the first time in the world. On his third date for Blue Note within a year, Wayne Shorter changed the bands that played on both Night Dreamer and Juju and came up with not only another winner, but also managed to give critics and jazz fans a different look at him as a saxophonist. Because of his previous associations with McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones, and Reggie Workman on those recordings, Shorter had been unfairly branded with the "just-another-Coltrane-disciple" tag, despite his highly original and unusual compositions.

Considered by many fans and critics alike to be Wayne Shorter finest album, The All Seeing Eye is a fabulous spiritual study which could be building blocks for his future projects such as Weather Report. Originally released in 1965 and continues to be revered and praised The All Seeing Eye featured an incredible line up of young talent that would turn into legends of the jazz scene. The title track and "Genesis" being standouts from the session; but also the album features Wayne Shorter's brother Alan on flugelhorn on the phenomenal final track "Mephistopheles." The piece was also written by Alan. The All Seeing Eye was another of a large selection of albums Shorter would record in a short and highly prolific time period.

Originally recorded in 1965, Soothsayer might be one of those underrated classics that you only know about (if you know about it). Recorded with a superb line up and featuring powerful and emotional interplay between Shorter and the rest of sextet, Soothsayer is a magical session not to be missed. “Angola” and the title track feature some bombastic sections from Shorter, Williams and Hubbard. While “Lady Day” is a lovely and romantic tribute to Billie Holiday executed with sublime musicianship. Soothsayer was one of a series of albums Shorter had recorded during a highly prolific period in the mid-sixties. Along with Shorter playing in Miles Davis’ group and various other factors, Soothsayer’s official release didn’t happen until the late '70s. But it is still considered an excellent document of Wayne Shorter immense vision and creativity.

On Adam’s Apple, Wayne Shorter leads an all-star rhythm section, which features drummer Joe Chambers, pianist Herbie Hancock and bassist Reggie Workman. This 1966 masterpiece finds Shorter at the peak of his career, with his saxophone soaring from start to finish. The album showcases one of his best known compositions, “Footprints.” Other standouts include “El Gaucho” and the title-track. The album remains one of music’s greatest masterpieces.

Juju is Wayne Shorter’s 1964 classic. Within this undeniable masterwork, the influences of John Coltrane are evident. The recording, his second as a bandleader for Blue Note Records, highlights his unmatched virtuosity. Performing with artistic sensitivity, the album features pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Reginald Workman and drummer Elvin Jones. This is the same rhythm section Coltrane utilized for his 1961 album Africa/Brass. The quartet not only showcases their thrilling chemistry but also their riveting solo talents, performing Shorter originals including “House Of Jade,” “Mahjong,” “Juju” and many more. The album is an essential document of Wayne Shorter’s compositional genius.

Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop

Recorded live on three different continents (Europe, America, and Asia) from 2002-2004, Beyond the Sound Barrier finds Wayne Shorter leading the same acoustic-oriented post-bop quartet he led on his 2001 recording, Footprints Live!; the veteran tenor and soprano saxophonist is joined by pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci, and drummer Brian Blade. But if Beyond the Sound Barrier should be considered a sequel to Footprints Live!, it is far from a carbon copy. While Footprints Live! contained several Shorter pieces that have become jazz standards (including "Atlantis," "Footprints," and "Juju" ), Beyond the Sound Barrier places more emphasis on new material.
