Born in Newark, New Jersey, on August 25, 1933, saxophonist Wayne Shorter (who is 86 at this writing) was described by jazz critic Ben Ratliff of the New York Times as “probably jazz’s greatest living small group composer and a contender for greatest living improviser.” Many of Shorter’s compositions have become jazz standards. His output has earned worldwide recognition, critical praise and various commendations, including multiple Grammy Awards. Presented here is Shorter’s complete LP Second Genesis. Although his music would become much more experimental after joining Miles Davis’ quintet a fewyears later, Shorter can still be heard here in the postbop style—more akin to the music he performed during that same period with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers.
