Wayne Shorter Native Dancer 180g LP
180g High Quality Vinyl!
The record company Columbia must be given credit for providing Wayne Shorter
with a studio and the finances to realize such an expensive and elaborate
production in 1974. Whether the costs were covered by the sales is certainly a
matter for conjecture. But there were, however, other super-selling pop giants
on their roster in the Seventies...
For the present LP Wayne Shorter took a chance with five compositions by Milton
Nascimento, wrote three pieces himself, and one was contributed by Herbie
Hancock. Apart from Herbie Hancock and Airto Moreira, the musicians were
relatively unknown, yet they were all capable of integrating themselves and
making a personal contribution. What is truly fascinating in this music is the
beauty of the themes, and the affinity to Brazilian folk music. In the liner
notes, Wayne Shorter emphasizes the authenticity and the seriousness with which
the studio was filled during the recording session. This is absolutely palpable
and audible in every second of the music – even after almost half a century.
What better reason for including "Native Dancer" in your collection, alongside
"Speak No Evil" and "Supernova". And by the way, with Wayne Shorter you can’t go
wrong; you can buy his records without any ifs and buts.
