The Classic Blue Note Recordings (Remastered)
by Various Artists
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Blue Note Records
This double-disc retrospective chronicles Shorter's tenure as leader on Blue Note between 1964 and 1970, and also captures some of his most inspired sessions as a sideman, smartly packaged as a greatest-hits compilation that ably introduces his skill as a soloist and songwriter. The first disc has Shorter's classics -- "Infant Eyes," "Footprints," "Witch Hunt" -- and the companion set deals with Shorter's work as a sideman with Art Blakey, Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard.
