A masterpiece hidden amongst the other Van Gelders,
This review is from: Speak No Evil (Audio CD)The new Rudy Van Gelder releases on Blue Note provide a great excuse to pick up those classic albums you are missing in your collection. This is one you must have.
Shorter has a beautiful round sound like Sonny Rollins on valium, but he plays with Coltrane's adventurism. This album showcases his writing skills, as well, with six beautiful tunes strung together like pearls on a necklace.
There really isn't any way to get the feeling into words. I've seen people try to describe Kind Of Blue or Sketches Of Spain and fail miserably to really express the beauty and the unity of the expression. This is an album of equal power and quality. Don't miss out on this.
