Aural Pleasure Review

Wayne Shorter: 'Without a Net'

Photo: , License: N/A


Following a 43-year hiatus from the label, this is Shorter's return to Blue Note. Recorded during Shorter's 2011 European tour (and one date in Los Angeles backed by Imani Winds), the album finds the 79-year-old saxophonist howling primal screams throughout the album's nine tracks and helped by the flawless Danilo Pérez on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Brian Blade on drums. As the compositional spark of Miles Davis' great quintet of the '60s, the founder of Weather Report and the owner of a faultless solo career, Shorter's résumé needs no hype — Without a Net simply cements his position at the vanguard of jazz.

★★★★ ½ (out of 5 stars)
