Wayne Shorter - Juju (1999) Retail CD
This exceedingly fine offering was recorded way back in 1967, although I have only come to it recently.Saxophonist/composer Shorter is joined by Coltrane regulars McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones and sometimes Coltranist Reggie Workman .The hugely impressive opening JuJu features a haunting, theme over a highly propulsive rythm section. Tyner’s solo leads into a fantastic, hypnotic, passionate long wail from the leader.Deluge too is another strong piece with more controlled passion from Shorters sax.House Of Jade is a ballad from a lovely theme from Mrs Shorter apparently. It again features some restrainedmore…, beautiful playing from Shorter. The delightful Mahjong could have been a Coltrane tune. Whereas Coltranes playing is searching ever outwards, Shorters seems to be more introspective, I feel. This song is just full of hearfelt musings.The more up-tempo Yes Or No keeps this wonderful album on the rails. the early Yes part feels confident and bright, but the middle No section sounds more doubtful, ambigious and a jot fretful before it returns to Yes.Twelve More Bars To Go is meant to be a slightly intoxicated look at a 12 bar blues. Slightly staggering backwards sometimes, instead of forwards. These guys pull it off. The album is filled out by alternate takes of Juju and House Of Jade.I really love this album. Give it a spin and see for yourselves.
