SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin
3 stars I would have thought that a Wayne Shorter album from the late 60s would have had more of a jazz-rock flavor, but that's not the case with Super Nova. Recorded while Miles was recording In a Silent Way, this album by contrast is noisy, cluttered, polyrhythmic and part of that classic 60s avant-jazz sound that includes Coltrane, Archie Shepp and Albert Ayler. Yet, Shorter stands apart from the other three because his music is not as loud, forceful or cliche as theirs. Most of the tunes on this album feature Wayne playing an abstract lead melody on the soprano sax and then leading his band with a lengthy solo. No other members of the band solo, but their busy rhythm playing often adds a thick tapestry of counter melodies.

Shorter has arranged an interesting combination of musicians here. Having the avant-gardist Sonny Sharrock on guitar with the more rockin Jon McLaughlin seems like an odd pairing, but they work things out with McLaughlin often adapting some of Sharrock's more unique takes on guitar technique. Add to those two; Airto, DeJohnette and Corea on drums and tuned percussion, plus Mirslov Vitous on bass and you have a very full busy sound, but thankfully handled with sensitivity and never particularly loud or annoying.

Two songs break the jazz improv mold, Sweet Pea's long oboe like melody and double classical guitar accompaniment sounds like a modern concert hall piece, and A.C. Jobim's classic Dindi is surrounded with an avant/African intro and outro. If you are looking for Weather Report or 60s Miles you won't find it here, but you will find an excellent avant jazz record delivered with taste and restraint.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars The content of the Solo album of Wayne Shorter announced in parallel with Quintet of Miles Davis became musical a variety of indeed rapidly in the latter half of the 60's his of that thought and might have been made an embodiment. The fact for Jazz of the mode to become a constant main current and to carry everything before one the world of Jazz will be sure to have developed with the idea of Miles Davis. It challenged with Music's revolution and their groping and creation were rapidly lively in the item of Jazz in the expectation toward the 70's. the directionality of Music whom the self had to pursue other musicians

Especially, the creation to the music of musicians who are related to the work of Miles Davis will have feeling to turn the directionality of Jazz in the 70's and to establish. And, the listener might have been told the way it should be as a base that indeed supported the dawn of Jazz and Fusion based on those elements for individual work.

If the content of the album by which Wayne Shorter worked as Solo Album in the latter half of the 60's was considered, did the charm of the revolution of the listener. Cool impression of "Adam's Apple" and talent for composition of Wayne Shorter. And, I will be able to ask "Schizophrenia" for posture in which it challenged music as his for rush into by Wayne Shorter in the 70's one indicator though it is difficult time. It was time when "In A Silent Way" of Miles Davis had been exactly announced at this time. Musicians might have felt the wave of the change in an easy loud sound in the flow. The deriving flow was absorbed by individual musicians and showed various sides. This "Super Nova" is an item of Jazz when considering it from the respect. Or, the fact that is the album of the content that leads to much for Wayne Shorter is clear now.

Time that should be able to be called dawn of Jazz/Fusion. Or, this album announced at the important time that should be able to be called a miracle faced in the 70's in the 60's might also play a major role as one of the indicators of the important music character that Jazz/Fusion at that time has. The element can be counted as one of the music created from another angle that derives from Miles Davis.

Might do the charm of Wayne Shorter in the world of SF at infancy and it be true to have announced the tune and the idea to often hear the element. The performance that can be listened by this "Super Nova" might be a content where the direction to the idea that he was exactly considering at that time and music appears remarkably. This album might be an important material when talking about the history of Jazz/Fusion.

Sense of Wayne Shorter that completely draws out part where guitar by John McLaughlin and Sonny Sharrock is good. And, the role of Miroslav Vitous that has a presentiment of the flow connected with Weather Report. Or, it is partial where Jack DeJohnette was appointed to make the content of this album an embodiment more perfectly. And, the role and the fact that Chick Corea is taken charge of the drum and the vibraphone as a point that should make a special mention and devoted to the musical instruments. The role might be really unusual. And, the role of Walter Booker that becomes the relation of the brother-in-law for Wayne Shorter. These musicians were people who contributed to the flow of Jazz the idea of Wayne Shorter and at that time. The flow of Jazz/Fusion has changed rapidly exactly.

"Super Nova" remarkably shows directionality that Jazz really at that time should face. It will be able to be said that the flood of the sound that mixes with the tohubohu is one of the music created from another flow different from Miles Davis. The calculated music that doesn't end only by the element of Free Jazz is never progressed.

I feel the depth of the interior of this album as for the melody and the atmosphere of a sensual guitar of "Swee Pea". Wayne Shorter that will perform soprano Sax by proposing Miles Davis satisfactorily demonstrates features of the musical instruments. The flow of a quiet sound in which the one space is imagined might be good each other.

"Dindi" in which Maria Booker and Walter Booker only participate in this album is recorded as a tune of A.C.Jobim. The part of ethnical is taken without destroying the entire impression of the album and it progresses. The part of a glossy melody and a strong percussion has succeeded in the piling of the atmosphere of the album. The tune shifts to a quiet flow and rushes into the part of Bossa Nova. An intense part appears again and the tune accompanies an enchantment element. Extent in which Maria Booker who is Portuguese has been appointed to the song has succeeded.

As for "Water Babies", the melody of soprano Sax that Wayne Shorter is beautiful twines round the guitar. The atmosphere of the drum of Jack DeJohnette contributes to the tune. The tune advances while keeping the light of gloss. The melody of Sax that shines in a chaotic impression gives the listener good atmosphere.

It starts from the impression that "Capricorn" is chaotic. The listener might be able to discover the fact that these flows really give musical the revolution for the field of Jazz/Fusion. Musician's ensemble has gone well while maintaining the form of Free Jazz. The one space flow will have been one revolution as the situation of music at that time.

"More Than Human" that decorates the end of the album advances with an enchantment impression. The expectation might be blocked in the composition of a freely advanced almost crack to the form of standard Jazz [**] tune at the same time as having a presentiment of the shape of Jazz that rushes into in the 70's.

The last stage of the 60's would have been indeed time of groping and the imagination for the kingdom of music. And, the idea of the musician produced momentarily at the time of rushed into by music at a little difficult time is to have the part of the miracle. It might be one of the very important albums in the flow of music that revolutionizes the power of this "Super Nova". And, it might be one of the important works when talking about the history of the music of Wayne Shorter. And, his fans have a lot of opinions that this album is enumerated as one of the masterpieces in the work of Wayne Shorter. "Super Nova" is always talked about as a content that always fades never.
