This review is from: Atlantis (Audio CD)
In my view, this is the most innovative and accomplished jazz album of the 80's annd beyond. This is no improvised, freewheeling jazz, but composed jazz that should be listened to like Bach or Beethoven, although it is extremely soulful and blues-inspired. This album was nearly unnoticed and misunderstood. The thing is that here the genius lies in the details. At each listening, it gets better- deeper, richer, more heart-wrenching and beautiful. This is because it's truely contrapunctal (multi-melodic) music- each little flute line in the background is a great song on its own.

I totally agree! I listened to this album so heavily many years back but had lost track of it for the last 15 years. But the tune, esp. track #1, has stayed in my head all these years as I tried to recall what Wayne Shorter album it's on. And with him not having a website I have had the hardest time tracking it down. But I just found it today and I did a search on Wayne Shorter complete discography and when I saw the word ATLANTIS I said THAT'S THE NAME!!! I am so happy to have finally found it again! I listened to it 25 years ago and will be repurchasing it right away!
