    It’s all intelligently arranged, but also in thrall to the energy and swing of jazz tradition--there is plenty of rhythm and blues during the improvising.

    Without a Net is free to bursting point, but it's a triumph.

    Comprising mostly new material, the performances are frequently breathtaking. [Mar 2013, p.91]

    This superb recording is as good a place as any to find a decent map.

    Shorter is firmly at the helm, yet benevolent enough to play the background when needed. The rhythm has taken him far.

    Perez, Pattitucci and Blade are about as blue chip as they come, and they easily outclass their somewhat calcified counterparts on the Rollins outings, but there are still sections in the collection that don’t feel on par with Shorter’s storied brilliance.
