Great Wayne Shorter album. Fantastic tunes, especially "House of Jade" and "Yes and No", and of course the title track. And the best musicians to play with him . I´m very pleased that on BN records you really can hear the drummer, so Elvin Jones really is very very well recorded.

Probably my favourite Wayne Shorter Blue Note euvre .... at least for today 😎 ....

Not going to be for everybody, but no matter. It's a lost gem. Eckstine/Riddle worked!

god, the blogosphere, iPods, the perfect combination. but like all perfections, it couldn't last (or at least it didn't last).

this is a perfectly high-quality portrait of music/record business economics in action. the music itself, eh...if that's what you want, you have many other options.

edit to add that the music itself is not totally without interest once/if you accept the premise.

upon further review...the business/economics angle is very real, as the record was produced by Wayne Henderson, 1969, World Pacific Jazz...leveraging that Jazz Crusaders juice into some business opportunity. We know where that all led.

Musically, though, there's a tuba on damn near every track, and it too a second or two for it to sink in that it's there to give the charts a black marching band sound. Don't know if Leonard Feather mentions this in his liner notes, but with the benefit of 50 years hindsight, it seems obvious now (again, once you accept the premise that this record is primarily a business deal).

Listening to and greatly enjoying this, another, different type of a "perfectly high-quality portrait of music/record business economics in action".
