Recorded on August 29 & September 2, 1969. Includes liner notes by Herb Wong.
SUPER NOVA is one of the most adventurous projects the saxophonist ever recorded. Here Shorter has made the broad leap into the "New Thing," as it was known, not unlike his friend John Coltrane had done a few years before. The emphasis of this style is on the unrestricted freedom of expression and the near-abandonment of traditional musical theory as it applies to jazz. In addition, Shorter fronts a large group here--John McLaughlin (guitar), Miroslav Vitous (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion), et al--and employs a wide variety of sound textures in support of his wailing soprano.
Sonically, this album covers many bases. The opening roar of the title track, a manic, free group improvisation, is reminiscent of Coltrane's late period. The mysterious "Swee-Pea," featuring a wash of percussion and expressive guitar work, is a wonderful feature for Shorter's unique tone. The most interesting track comes with Jobim's "Dindi," beautifully sung by vocalist Maria Booker with Shorter providing tasteful response. The disc's most masterful performance, however, is the rolling "Water Babies" which would become a Shorter classic. Finally, the free flowing "Capricorn" and the epic "More Than Human" close this most challenging session.
