This is Wayne Shorter’s debut album and you will love it. It’s categorized as a Hard Bop Album and was released in 1959. It was titled “Introducing Wayne Shorter” and can be purchased here. I will later place it in the Hard Bop Playlist. For play times check here in the Schedule Link.

About the Album:

Also known as Blues A La Carte, this Vee Jay disc has tenor-saxophonist Wayne Shorter’s first session as a leader and it shows that, even at this early stage, Shorter was far along toward developing his own sound. Teamed up with trumpeter Lee Morgan, pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb, the six selections (five of which are Shorter originals) capture the young tenor shortly after he joined Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. The music is essentially hard bop and, although none of these Shorter tunes caught on, the music is quite enjoyable. A special treat is the one standard of the date, a swinging version of “Mack The Knife.”…..Learn More

"Jazz music is something incredible as the sky. It always sounds the same but you hear it differently every time as you tune in. It' s cool to hear classic jazz from old times, tunes from 40-70era always sound way better then any from 90-2000s era. No advertisements on the radio is great too, only nice, flawless jazz."

"I just downloaded this app and it's my first (certainly of many!) evenings with you. The music is great but so is the philosophy of why you created this space and the visual and functional appearance of the space.
Congratulations, I don't think I will ever become tired of visiting you!"
