The Jazz Record Art Collective is proud to welcome the Andy Baker Sextet for a livestream performance of Wayne Shorter’s 1967 release SCHIZOPHRENIA at Fulton Street Collective on Wednesday, August 5th. The night will also feature an installation and live painting from visual artist Micah Rademacher.
“Wayne Shorter was at the peak of his creative powers when he recorded Schizophrenia in the spring of 1967. …Shorter found a band that was capable of conveying his musical “schizophrenia,” which means that this is a band that can play straight just as well as they can stretch the limits of jazz… And “unpredictable” is the operative phrase for this set of edgy post-bop. Shorter’s compositions (as well as James Spaulding’s lone contribution, “Kryptonite”) have strong themes, but they lead into uncharted territory, constantly challenging the musicians and the listener. This music exists at the border between post-bop and free jazz — it’s grounded in post-bop, but it knows what is happening across the border. ”
