Denny Zeitlin released an album of early Shorter compositions

Pianist and composer Danny Zeitlin pays tribute to saxophonist Wayne Shorter in his latest album Early Wayne – Explorations of Classic Wayne Shorter Compositions, released on Sunnyside Records on July 8.

 

The album features Zeitlin take on Shorter compositions in solo piano format. The track-list includes such titles as “Speak No Evil,” “Ju Ju” and “Nefertiti.”

 

In a press statement, Zeitlin explained that Shorter’s music “was innovative, cliché-free, with unusual shapes of phrases, twists and turns, deliciously fresh harmonies, and melodies that kept reverberating.” He also said, “Wayne’s evolution has continued to inspire me over the ensuing decades, and I’ve recorded his compositions on a number of occasions.”
