EDITORS’ NOTES

A stack of prime cuts from Wayne Shorter in the midst of his landmark run of ’60s albums, Speak No Evil announces the saxophonist’s arrival as one of jazz’s greatest composers, with standards like the incredible title track, the jumping “Witch Hunt,” and the surging “Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum” rounding out the set. But pay special attention to his exceptional bandmates—Herbie Hancock on piano, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Elvin Jones, and trumpeter Freddie Hubbard—who do some of their finest work here as well.
