When Wayne Shorter recorded Speak No Evil, the former Jazz Messenger was, along with pianist Hancock and bassist Carter, a member of the Miles Davis Quintet and was playing an advanced form of hard bop as well as writing strikingly original compositions. Hancock was looking forward also, as his masterful manipulation of the meter in his solo attests. Like many of Shorter’s tunes, "Speak No Evil" has become a classic.
