'Footprints', by the Miles Davis Quintet

When I was in Paris last week, I saw a lot of posters announcing a ‘Tribute To Miles' on July 18th, featuring Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Sean Jones (trumpet) and Sean Richman (drums).
Bassist Marcus Miller contrived and produced the tribute, the occasion being the fact that Miles Davis died twenty years ago. Miller was involved with great Davis albums like ‘The Man With the Horn' and 'Tutu’, while Hancock and Shorter had already experienced adventures with the trumpeter in the sixties. 
When I returned home last Saturday, I checked if they would also visit The Netherlands, and found out they will play at the North Sea Jazz Festival on July 10th 2011, in my hometown Rotterdam. I bought a ticket instantly.


To get myself in the mood, here is ‘Footprints’, recorded in Sweden on October 31st, 1967.

Miles Davis - Trumpet
Wayne Shorter - Tenor Saxophone
Herbie Hancock - Piano
Ron Carter - Bass
Tony Williams - Drums

    There is a book by the same name about Wayne Shorter’s life that is well worth a read. A quiet giant he is!

  9. tornandfrayed said: I’m looking at buying tickets too, especially for Ahmad Jamal but the rest of the line-up is pretty rad too.
