Odyssey of Iska is the fourteenth album by Americanjazzcomposer and saxophonistWayne Shorter, released on Blue Note Records in 1971. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "On the verge of joining Weather Report (referred to in the liner notes as 'Weather Forecast'), it is not surprising that Shorter's originals include titles such as 'Wind,' 'Storm,' and "Calm'. These moody works were never covered by other jazz players but they work quite well in this context, launching melancholy flights by Shorter". The percussionist/drummer on this album, Frank Cuomo, is the father of rock group Weezer's frontman, Rivers Cuomo. Around the time the record was made, Shorter and his wife had a daughter named Iska.
