Wayne Shorter – Wind (1970)

Wind is the first track on Wayne Shorters Odyssey of Isaka, recorded at the A&R Studios, New York City on August 26, 1970.

Odyssey of Iska is a 1971 album by American jazz composer and saxophonist Wayne Shorter, released on Blue Note Records. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states “On the verge of joining Weather Report (referred to in the liner notes as ‘Weather Forecast’), it is not surprising that Shorter’s originals include titles such as ‘Wind,’ ‘Storm,’ and “Calm’. These moody works were never covered by other jazz players but they work quite well in this context, launching melancholy flights by Shorter”. The percussionist/drummer on this album, Frank Cuomo, is the father of rock group Weezer’s frontman, Rivers Cuomo. [source]
