Much underrated sax player

"I know it becomes difficult to judge music by star systems when every reviewer seems to give 5 stars for all recordings....I guess we tend to review the recordings we like!Just one other review of this appears here so I thought I'd give it a shot.Wayne Shorter was (is!) one of the most important tenor/soprano sax players to have emerged from the Miles Davis era of jazz rennaisance of the 50's and 60's. He is from the Coltrane/Rollins style of hard, sharp and cool sax. This album is a thoughtful collection of Wayne's playing from the 1960's Blue Note recordings.I think this is a wonderful selection. I particularly like "Adam's Apple" (great for budding tenor players to attempt to play along to!), but all pieces are great! His playing is exceptional - technically excellent, yet still emotional. I find a lot of jazz tends to go through the motions of chords/scales etc., devoid of feeling. Not Wayne and not here...if you like sax and have not heard Wayne's Blue Note era, get this one...at least as good as his contemporaries yet more accessible IMHO"
An emotional time bomb

"I was waiting for this superb album to come out for a long, long time! An now is my chance to review it, great! As always Shorter is superb in this Best of combining all time favorites JuJu, Adam's Apple and most of all Speak no Evil. I can't find much to say since I am so taken aback by the outstanding quality of Wayne's playing (sound and technique). Herbie is wonderful, Lee superb and Horace incredible. I don't think I will go in to more detail and remain at the level of superlatives since the music speaks for itself. Some of the tunes just well up the tears and others unleach the passion. A MUST!!"
