Morning Song – Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum

April 22, 2017

“Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum”, off Wayne Shorter’s terrific 1964 album, Speak No Evil, sounds just like you’d imagine the giant from “Jack & The Beanstalk” to sound…if, that is, you imagined an extraordinarily intelligent, philosophically inclined, gently reflective, humorously clever, hard bopping, sweet swinging giant.

At the time, Shorter (sax) and bandmates Freddie Hubbard (trumpet), Herbie Hancock (piano), Ron Carter (bass) and Elvin Jones (drums) were each among a handful of the finest instrumentalists in the world. Together, they’re endlessly and extraordinarily inventive and satisfying.

Enjoy.
