Schizophrenia (Tone Poet): Vinyl LP4849853
Label: Blue Note
Release Date: 1st September
This is a prime jazz release, my friend, it's one that simply has it all, it's a bopper and in the title track you have that breakneck swing, the rhythm is utterly bewildering. It's jazz releases like this that make you feel alive.
Wayne Shorter’s 1967 album Schizophrenia found the legendary saxophonist at the pinnacle of post-bop with a sextet of like-minded musical explorers including James Spaulding, Curtis Fuller, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter & Joe Chambers performing Shorter originals like ‘Tom Thumb’, ‘Go’, and ‘Miyako’.
This stereo Tone Poet Vinyl Edition was produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI, and packaged in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket.
