Q#82 – Wayne Shorter “Alegría”

300x300_TalkAboutJazz.Com_Wayne Shorter_AlegríaSaxophonist Wayne Shorter said (2002): “I don’t think in terms of “expressing myself” in jazz. I think that’s a misunderstanding. You make this thing, and you make it the best you can, and if it isn’t “jazz” and it doesn’t say anything about you, or me, that’s OK. Expression is what other people put on you.

Recorded: 2002

from “The Penguin Jazz Guide – The History of the Music in the 1001 Best Albums”, Brian Morton & Richard Cook, 2010

  1. “Shorter’s post Blue Note career has a funny shape. For decade and half, he devoted his talents to Weather Report, but listening to that discography in sequence creates a curious impressione that Wayne is detaching himself from Zoe Zawinul and the group, but with infinite slowness.

    Shorter experimented with grown-up fusion, and other formats, but looked to be heading for a technical knockout when “Footprints Live!” with a strong new group revisited some of his great compositions and signalled a return to the terse, phlegmatic post-bop of earlier years.

    It isn’t “Speak No Evil” and probably doesn’t come up to “Adam’s Apple” either, but it’s a terrific record by a modern master.”
    from the same book quoted above.

  2. Love the feeling of this saxo. A Great Music to dance with your partner ;)
