    Forty-plus years later, this rogue philosopher still sounds like he’s holding on for dear life--and loving every second of it.

    The pursuit of risky and rigorous music-making continues to feel wiser and nobler for his prodigious, elevating presence. [Oct 2018, p.52]

    The music of Emanon is enchanting all on its own. Wayne Shorter's best album? Probably not. But one of Wayne Shorter's more interesting late-career diversions? Definitely yes.

    If newcomers discover Shorter via this luxurious multimedia package, then Emanon will have done its job--but the music here is all that it really takes.

    Emanon moves through dimensions and times with a surprising fluidity. That the album includes three discs and a graphic novel gives it unusual heft, but Shorter’s construction of the segments provides insight into his recent era, particularly stemming from 2013’s Without a Net.

    The most satisfying moments come when the orchestra stops playing, allowing the quartet to settle into its own groove, as it does often for those London sets.

    Emanon is unequivocally a visual treat but in purely musical terms, it's nothing less than stunningly breathtaking. [Oct 2018, p.88]
