In many contemporary discussions about great jazz pieces of the 1960s, I feel that the genius Wayne Shorter often gets overlooked. Take “Yes Or No” from his 1964 album JuJu. It’s like he’s speaking a language of mystics but in a way that anyone can understand.
You can’t beat band that includes McCoy Tyner on piano, Reggie Workman playing bass and the master Elvin Jones on drums either!
