Wayne Shorter - Mahjong. Just ordered his Juju album, a reissue though, but I figured it seems pretty essential in my Blue Note collection.

Awesome record... my off-the-cuff ranking of the classic Wayne Blue Notes:

Speak No Evil (Elvin on Dance Cadaverous alone makes the whole record)
Night Dreamer
Schizophrenia
Adam's Apple
JuJu
The Soothsayer
The All Seeing Eye

Never really got into Super Nova, never heard the last two from '70 (BN was in the tank by then anyway), and not counting Et Cetera since it wasn't released at the time...

I love the mid-60s Blue Notes by the avant-garde dudes, all the Wayne, Bobby Hutcherson and Joe Hen records... Herbie (the underrated Inventions and Dimensions... the alternate take of One Finger Snap from the RVG Empyrean Isles, which isHerbie in '64 nailing pretty much everything the Wynton cats would try to do in the 80s and early 90s)... Grachan Moncur III and Andrew Hill's Point of Departure, all the Andrew Hill records are awesome, Smokestack is a personal favorite...

Lately I've been listening to this wonderfully off-kilter, but relatively straightahead, Andrew Hill date on Blue Note from the 80s...

I don't know why I'm not on this thread more, as I worked for a while professionally as a jazz critic, tons of fun, got to meet some heroes, and jazz from the 1920s-present makes up the majority of what I listen to every day...

I actually rank both Night Dream and Juju ahead of Speak No Evil. Though Wayne Shorters best composition it "Sincerely Diana" from the A Night In Tunisia album. I loved that configuration of Art Blakley and The Jazz Messengers, the way it all blended together so perfectly. Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter sounded so unified. I haven't gotten that deep into jazz though, I have some albums that I listen to, though there is a one record that I'm after just because of this song:

Swedish jazz from 1966. Criticize it.

Haha, there's a ton of Swedish jazz on iTunes for some reason, a lot of it is cool.

"Sincerely Diana" is awesome, all the Wayne Jazz Messengers albums were great - he actually turned down Miles in 1960 when Coltrane left because he wanted to keep his gig as JM music director, which he left after "Free For All" (I think) in '64 and then went to Miles, replaced the short-lived (in that group) Sam Rivers...
