Wayne Shorter - High Life (1995) Retail CD
I bought this on a whim and WOW it was a good decision! On this album Shorter develops some of the compositional ideas he pursued on his 1986 album Atlantis. But whereas Atlantis was struggling to have some kind of 'soundtack' theme, this album succeeds. High Life has the feel of a suite - every song sounds the same as the last, but is also a variation and new twist on the last. The only weak track is the last one which seesms to be a coda to the wonderful writing and playing before it. A note on Shorter's sax playing style - very much like his playing on 1+1, very 'shrieky', and his solos aremore… gut-wrenching! Solos of more beauty and pain I have never heard before! As on Atlantis, Shorter overdubs soprano and tenor parts, creating the striking effect of the presence of two different but complementary sax soloists. Those seeking Shorter in similar contexts may want to explore Atlantis or John Scofield's Quiet which I think shares a number of similarities to High Life, including the presence of Shorter as soloist (on some tracks).
