Adam's Apple, Wayne's fifth album for Blue Note, is probably his most instantly enjoyable among a crop of spectacular recordings. First of all, Wayne is an imaginative and prolific composer. I rate the title track and El Gaucho among his finest tunes. Secondly, this LP has a funky swing guaranteed to set your feet dancing. It's one of those rare modal albums that's rich enough for the seasoned listener, but bops hard enough for the kids. Finally, Wayne is backed by superlative, forward-thinking musicians: Herbie Hancock, Reggie Workman, and Joe Chambers.
The sound quality on this RVG edition is pristine and it boasts a terrific bonus track by Hancock. Don't wait any longer than you have to, this baby merits rush delivery!
"Adam's Apple" is a groovy opener, which the updated liner notes seem to dismiss as Shorter's attempt at "The Sidewinder". I found the piece very enjoyable, if not as complex as some of Shorter's other work. "502 Blues" is lovely, more ballad than blues. My favorite on the album, it brings to mind driving at night under hazy streetlights. "El Gaucho" borrows from bossa nova, given a unique feel by Shorter. The highlight of the set is probably "Footprints", a Shorter masterpiece, probably more familiar in its Miles Smiles incarnation, but given an amazing reading here. The central sax riff is very haunting, backed by some dynamite bass work from Workman.Read more ›

Avoid the RVG remaster of this CD. The non-RVG sounds much better. The RVG is compressed and harsh sounding. The non-RVG sounds warm and inviting with better bass.Published on February 6, 2013 by Painter
