Wayne Shorter’s classic album, The All Seeing Eye will be featured here for all the Jazz Con Class listeners to enjoy. This was a very advance album for 1964. It is categorized as an Avant-Guarde album and with a great supporting cast, James Spaulding (alto saxophone); Freddie Hubbard (trumpet, flugelhorn); Alan Shorter (flugelhorn); Grachan Moncur III (trombone); Herbie Hancock (piano); Joe Chambers (drums). A great album that can be considered to be Wayne Shorter’s best post Hard Bop and before Jazz Fusion success. Every tune is uniquely different from each other and takes its own special path of exploration. Check the schedule link for play times and enjoy!

About the album:

Digitally remastered using 24-bit technology by Rudy Van Gelder (2000, Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey). This is part of the Blue Note Rudy Van Gelder Editions series. Wayne Shorter’s epic THE ALL SEEING EYE can be compared in character to John Coltrane’s A LOVE SUPREME. It is the culmination of the first leg of Shorter’s artistic journey, which began in earnest in 1964 with his first solo recordings for Blue Note. Like SUPREME, it is a deeply spiritual work, with both the album and song titles referring to God’s creation of the universe. Also, unlike his previous efforts, EYE marks the first time Shorter commanded such a large ensemble, a feature that would mark many future solo outings. Compositionally, Shorter takes daring leaps here, greatly expanding his freer modal style. Traditional forms are bent and stretched beyond recognition as themes and solos meld into a continuous stream, projecting moods and varying intensities that reflect the album’s subject. The large horn section creates a massive sound on ensemble passages and a great variety of interpretations in solo jaunts. Also part of Shorter’s design is the role of the rhythm section, more an ebbing whirlwind than strictly a supporting unit. THE ALL SEEING EYE is one of Wayne Shorter’s boldest and most successful efforts……Read More
