Live at Montreux 1996
Eagle Eye Media
Enigmatic and cerebral, saxophonist Wayne Shorter's still evolving legacy remains one of the richest in the world of living jazz icons. Still, despite some fine writing, his return to recording as a leader after a 10-year absence, High Life (Verve, 1995) was underappreciated and remains an undervalued footnote amongst his classic Blue Note albums and more recent discs, including the empathic Beyond the Sound Barrier (Verve, 2005). Still, while High Life's sound was perhaps a tad clinical and overproduced by Marcus Miller: there was plenty of grist for a more energetic live approach, as documented on the DVD, Live at Montreux 1996.
