Wayne Shorter Speak No Evil Vinyl LP + CD

Timeless Blue Note Releases on LP & CD in One Package! No music label represented the classic era better than Blue Note Records and now they're proudly unveiling the first group in their series of Vinyl + Bonus CD reissues of the cream of the crop classics from the Blue Note Vaults! Each LP is mastered from the original analog tapes by Ron McMaster. Each state-of-the-art CD is mastered in 24-bit by Rudy Van Gelder, the original recording engineer of these historic sessions. These releases are iconic, not just for the music inside, but also for the stunning, legendary album covers, which are works of art in themselves.

Just thirty-one at the time of this 1964 classic, Wayne Shorter had just recorded Night Dreamer and Ju-Ju for Blue Note within the past year and was at one of his major peaks of creativity. The music on Speak No Evil, which includes such future Shorter standards as "Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum" and "Infant Eyes," is often beyond description for it combines the best elements of hard bop, post bop, free jazz and modal music plus Shorter's own individual approach.

Not only does Shorter sound inspired by his own challenging pieces but so does Freddie Hubbard and Herbie Hancock. This is not standard bebop or a predictable type of soul jazz but is actually a brand new style of music that has yet to be fully exploited. Over 40 years later, Speak No Evil still sounds fresh, new and futuristic, standing as one of the most important recordings of the mid-1960s. CD version includes an alternative take bonus track of "Dance Cadaverous."
