WAYNE SHORTER Footprints Live! (Verve By Request Series 2023 limited edition 8-track double album 2-LP, manufactured at Third Man Pressing in Detroit MI and pressed on 180-gram audiophile quality vinyl. This live album 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. High quality gatefold picture sleeve with hype sticker, factory sealed. Recommended)

Focusing on rare gems and fan-requested jazz albums from the Verve Label Group's stable of iconic labels, the series will offer two titles per month — each hand-picked by Verve and Third Man Records. The records will include both long-out-of-print titles from the vault as well as the first-ever vinyl pressings for albums released in the '90s and aughts.
Albums will be newly remastered from original analog sources, when available, and pressed on 180-gram at Third Man Record Pressings in Detroit.
