this is from wayne shorter's debut disc as a leader for blue note, 1964. he was quite familiar to blue note listeners as a major cog in art blakey's jazz messengers. he arrived on the scene w/ blakey, late 1959. wayne recorded 14 blue note albums w/ that group between then and the release of Night Dreamer in '64, the bulk of those albums coming out in 1960-1961.
wayne was writing on each and every one of these records, including composing ALL the pieces on 1961's Roots and Herbs.
from 64-70, wayne recorded 10 blue note albums, as a leader. Juju and Speak No Evil, are the instant classics, coming out after this debut. tying in this debut to the Duane Allman week of BOTD - derek trucks, a noted shorter fanatic, covered Oriental Folk Song (from the featured album here) on a record of his.
irony - i was thinking of wayne's blue note album Et Cetera (5th solo release) earlier today.
 Yes Yes Yes!! Got all the WS Blue Notes, they are amazing. He's always been so under-rated, true genius composer and sax player.
