Reviews :

“Recorded in 1965 but not released until 1980, Et Cetera holds its own against the flurry of albums Wayne Shorter released during the mid-'60s, a time when he was at the peak of his powers. It is hard to imagine why Blue Note might have chosen to shelve the album, as it shows Shorter in a very favorable light with an incredibly responsive rhythm section performing four of his originals and a cover of Gil Evans' "Barracudas." The low-key nature of the album as a whole, especially the title track, might have contributed to Blue Note's lack of attention, but there are definitely gems here, especially the closing track, "Indian Song." At times the rest of the album seems like a warm-up for that amazing tune, where Shorter swirls around in a hypnotizing dance with Herbie Hancock's piano, grounded by the nocturnal bass of Cecil McBee and the airy structure of Joe Chambers' drumming. The short, repetitive themes and passionate, soulful playing echo John Coltrane, but this quartet has its own flavor, and the perfect, intricate web they weave here helps pull the whole session up to a higher level.” Review by Stacia Proefrock

"Per Don Was's direction, everything about this reissue series closely mirrors the Music Matters releases that so impressed Was..." - Michael Fremer, Analogplanet.com, February 21, 2019

"The titles for the Tone Poet series, handpicked by Harley with input from Blue Note president Don Was, cover lesser-known releases from both the classic and modern Blue Note eras as well as labels like Pacific Jazz, World Pacific, and Solid State... The Shorter quartet album, recorded in 1965 but released in 1980, showcases the leader's signature oblique tenor lines in the company of pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Cecil McBee, and drummer Joe Chambers. Highlights include the title track, fueled by a powerful drum solo from Chambers, and the dreamy ballad 'Penelope'. Hancock delivers a meditative solo on the 5/4 'Indian Song' while the smoothly swinging 'Toy Tune' hinges on McBee's insistent walk and Chambers' ride cymbal pulse. The only non-Shorter composition is the striking 6/8 Gil Evans composition, 'Barracudas'." - Bill Milkowski, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2019
