Wayne Shorter Quartet featuring Herbie Hancock, Gary Peacock and Tony Williams, Live at VV in NYC, 1965


By special request of Pierre

This is a historic session with the great Wayne Shorter (I always liked more his playing on tenor sax!) with a All Star Lineup.
This is nothing for our HIFI freaks here...probably a transfer from an old and quite aged Reel, but for this special occassion...the value of this music is more important.


Live at Village Vanguard in NYC, 1965-08-XX
