Totally great. It feels utterly timeless, really. I love the fact that Shorter keeps his improvisations tethered to a relatable melody, subtly touching down on it from time to time. It's got a really solid balance. I am sure you will like it. Anything else new in the jazz world I should be aware of?
Edit: There's also some pretty stunning work on "Pegasus," during the middle of which, someone (not sure if it's a band member or audience member) audibly says, "Oh my god!"
Pegasus is fantastic. It's the drummer, Brian Blade, who calls it out, I think.

I need some Nick Cave in my life. Just watched the Proposition again and realized that I haven't gotten any of his stuff since the last time I watched that movie and thought "I really need to get some Nick Cave stuff"
I think we're experiencing a wave of Nick Cave love in here lately.
New albums releases are good times to discover an artist. That or it will get you nostalgic for that other album of theirs that you haven't heard in ages. Watch for The Eraser to make more than one appearance around the time AMOK is release.
