65,00 € IVA inc.
When Wayne Shorter first emerged in the late 1950s, he was originally thought of as a John Coltrane-influenced tenor-saxophonist. It quickly became apparent that, though Shorter shared some influences with 'Trane, he was a true original. His solos and compositions were so personal and unique that it became impossible to trace them back to any historical predecessors. His music defied any classification, falling into an undisclosed location between hard bop and the avant garde; connected to jazz but existing in its own musical world. Adam's Apple (1966) features Shorter at the top of his game. The album introduces the saxophonist's best known composition, "Footprints,” an abstract tribute to John Coltrane, "Chief Crazy Horse” and a haunting ballad, "Teru.” With Wayne Shorter cementing a musical friendship/partnership with Herbie Hancock that continues to this day, he creates a masterpiece that ranks among a handful of superb albums from the mid-1960s.

"The albums are being cut at 45 RPM for maximum quality by Kevin Gray and me using our full ANALOG disk cutting system; most studios cannot even cut vinyl in 100% true analog anymore (they convert to digital first) but we can. The original Rudy Van Gelder engineered stereophonic session tapes are used when we master these gems. The sound quality is amazing on our test cuts. Like from heaven. First totally uncompressed versions of these jazz classics that I’ve ever heard and trust me, you will be impressed; they sound like no other releases of this music."
"The sound is lifelike, the horns are in the room with you. Our non-invasive mastering insures the true breath of life on these original Van Gelder session tapes is transferred to the virgin vinyl with absolute authenticity. It is like hearing these BLUE NOTE masterpieces for the first time and that is NO exaggeration. When we heard the first lacquer acetate playback from our first mastering session I thought Joe Harley was going to pee in his pants he was so excited. Actually we all were; after 50 years of many lackluster and some downright bad sounding versions of these albums, hearing the real deal is a humbling experience, even for us hardened music veterans. You will be able to listen to the music exactly like we did..." - Steve Hoffman
