This morning’s cycling expedition took me across a freeway overpass whose height allowed a perfect view of Mount Adams sixty miles to the southwest. When I decided to share it with you, I wondered what music might best go with the picture. A quick staff meeting came up with the answer. All right, all right; the answer has nothing to do with the mountain’s namesake, the second president of The United States, or with his son, the sixth president. It has to do with an excuse to play you Wayne Shorter. Perhaps you won’t mind.
“Adam’s Apple” from the Wayne Shorter’s 1966 Blue Note album of the same name. Can this music this hip really be 50 years old?
