AllMusic Review by

The second of tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter's three Vee Jay LPs, Second Genesis has five of Shorter's quirky originals plus the obscure "The Ruby and the Pearl" (from a '50s movie) and a pair of standards. Joined by a particularly strong rhythm section (pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Art Blakey), Shorter sounds quite distinctive on the advanced hard bop material.
