Tenor-saxophonist Wayne Shorter’s Blue Note debut found him well prepared to enter the big time. With an impressive quintet that includes trumpeter Lee Morgan, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Reggie Workman and drummer Elvin Jones, Shorter performed a well-rounded program consisting of five of his originals plus an adaptation of an “Oriental Folk Song.” Whether it be the brooding title cut, the Coltranish ballad “Virgo” or the jams on “Black Nile” and “Charcoal Blues,” this is a memorable set of high-quality and still fresh music.
