1964 was a magical year for Wayne Shorter. His sheer musical output is astounding during this period, as is the volume of greatness he produced with his Blue Note albums. "Black Nile" is no exception. Shorter and company are joined by Lee Morgan, who adds spice to this already tasty jazz entrée. It's too bad Morgan didn't appear on every album Wayne did, since he complements the Coltrane rhythm section perfectly and, when combined with Shorter, forms one of the best horn duos on wax.
