Wayne Shorter Footprints Live!
This live album — released on vinyl for the first time — is made up of three European dates in 2001, and introduced Shorter’s ‘Footprint Quartet’: pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade. All are in top form, especially on challenging reimaginations of the title track and ‘Masquelero’, both from his time with the 1960’s Miles Davis Quintet.
VERVE BY REQUEST SERIES: remastered, audiophile-quality 180-gram vinyl from Third Man Pressing/Detroit, gatefold sleeve.
