Biography

WAYNE SHORTER QUARTET

The wire is thin and stretched tight between two poles. On one end is everything known – the safe sounds, the expected chords resolving in expected ways. On the far end is something more elusive – the magic realm where jazz becomes what the critic Whitney Balliett once called “the sound of surprise.”

The musician works moment to moment ... Read more in Amazon's Wayne Shorter Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Wayne Shorter and Milton Nascimento at their peak May 22, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Although the cover says "Wayne Shorter featuring Milton Nascimento", this is really a "Milton Nascimento featuring Wayne Shorter" album. Not only because the main themes are authored by Milton, but also because of the presence of two of the musicians responsible for his sui generis sound in his 70's albums: Wagner Tiso and his remarkable harmonies, Robertinho Silva and his flamboyant drumming. The tracks "Ponta de Areia", "Tarde", and "Miracle of the fishes" are pure 70's Milton Nascimento. But, of course, choosing to market the album as Wayne Shorter's was the right thing to do to hit the charts in the US.

Having said that, the track "Lilia" goes in the opposite direction. Although it was also composed by Milton, this is quite different from the original version (which is also fantastic), heard on Milton and Lo Borges seminal album "Clube da Esquina". Think of it as "Weather Report does Milton Nascimento" - although the beautiful vocal melody is kept intact, the harmony is totally redone, giving the track a darker atmosphere, much like the Weather Report tracks we all love.

This was the album which caught my attention to Milton Nascimento. I've bought Clube da Esquina just afterwards, and I was so blown away that I immediately ordered all the albums he recorded in the seventies (definitely his best stuff). "Milton", "Clube da Esquina", "Milagre dos Peixes" (the album, both the studio and the live edition, which includes unreleased tracks), "Minas", "Geraes", and "Clube da Esquina II" are all must-buy records.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody should own this recording! July 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When "Native Dancer" came out in the 70s I wore out several LP recordings of this album and bought copies for my friends. Wayne and Milton made excellent musical partners and are ably supported by Herbie Hancock, Wagner Tiso, Robertinho Silva, and Airto Moriera. Wonderful versions of Milton's songs, "Ponte de Areia","Tarde", "Milagre Dos Peixes", Wayne's "Beauty and the Beast" and "Ana Maria", and Herbie Hancock's "Joanna's Theme". One of the most delightful and beautiful recordings ever made. Thirty-five years later this is still a breath of fresh air and full of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Star February 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Excellent! Lots of solo room for Mssrs.Shorter and Hancock. Extension of Weather Report although different. Godfather to Pat Metheny's subsequent efforts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a try, you will be glad you did. July 3, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have had some form of this album for 20 years(now a CD)..Wayne Shorter was at the top of his game here(still is great) and Milton Nascimiento should be heard if you have never heard of him. Their interplay is fantastic. The rest of the group is stand-out and I still break it out regularly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic! March 16, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album way back in the 70's and it has remained one of my favorites. I had always loved Wayne Shorter and Weather Report but teaming Wayne Shorter up with Milton Nascimento produced an album that was just a pure joy. It's sad that Milton Nascimento never became a household name in America. If I recall, on the original liner notes Wayne Shorter was wondering why he even had to explain the greatness of the man. Needless to say, over the years I have continued to be a fan of both these great musicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars The album that started it all.... February 14, 2014
By Djeibou
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album for my best friend's birthday in 1975 during our senior year in high school. As I young, aspiring hippie musician, I was already familiar with Wayne due to his association with both Miles and Weather Report. I didn't realize at the time, however, that this release would open the door to my now life-long obsession with M.P.B. Although I still admire jazz, artists such as Milton, Caetano, Djavan, Gil, Joao Bosco and Ivan Lins RULE!!! Nothing else comes close.....
