Wayne Shorter - Footprints Live! (2002) Retail CD
Footprints Live! constitutes a number of firsts for Wayne Shorter: this is his first live album as a leader, it is his first wholly acoustic record since the late 1960s and it is first release as a leader in this new decade, it being no less than eight years since his previous headline album, High Life. Such precedents establish expectations and bring their own pressures, but Shorter has responded well. Firstly, the recording stems from his recent international tour with a quartet made up of himself (on tenor here for all but one track), pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci and drummermore… Brian Blade, a tour that was reckoned to be his strongest as a leader that anyone could remember. Secondly, he made judicious selections from his own compositional back-catalogue, combining nostalgia and recognisability with an openness of construction that allowed his group to function at maximum creative intensity. So we get fascinating new versions of "Sanctuary", "Masqualero", "Footprints" and "JuJu", plus, among other curiosities, a Shorter arrangement of Sibelius's famous "Valse Triste". The dialogue between all four musicians is something truly to savour: this will be a strong candidate for album of the year. --Keith Shadwick
