Wayne Shorter – Second Genesis


The second of tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter’s three Vee Jay LPs, Second Genesis has five of Shorter’s quirky originals plus the obscure “The Ruby and the Pearl” (from a ’50s movie) and a pair of standards. Joined by a particularly strong rhythm section (pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Art Blakey), Shorter sounds quite distinctive on the advanced hard bop material.

Personnel: Wayne Shorter (tenor saxophone); Cedar Walton (piano); Bob Cranshaw (bass); Art Blakey (drums).
