"In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you've set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder's studio!" - Blue Note President, Don Was.
Music legend Wayne Shorter has composed some of music's most memorable tunes. His seminal classic, Speak No Evil, features guest appearances by heavyweights Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard and Elvin Jones. This evocative listen with its subtle layers features a series of long tunes allowing for rich harmonies to develop. Showcasing his compositional ingenuity, the album's title track has become a staple in the jazz repertoire. Influencing countless musicians that followed, Speak No Evil was one of Shorter's finest solo efforts and is essential for any collection.
