    Over here in US Army Europe, we don't get very much good jazz at the local Post Exchange (PX). So when I walked to the microscopic jazz section (filled with Kenny G--not "G" as in the ultra hip Kenny Garrett) expecting to be dissappointed yet again, I saw Wayne Shorter's album "Alegria" (or something like that).

    Has anyone heard this? Is it worth the $17 bucks the PX charges me to buy it on the spot, or should I wait and order it off Tower?

    Let me know.

    i don't like it at all, but then I'm weird.
    the critics loved it though.

    i prefer the albums he did on Columbia.
    i really like "joy rider"


    BTW you know you can go here and download sound clips from it

    I read a DownBeat review of it, the guy really liked it. From what I remember, it got about 3 out of 5 stars.
