Editorial Reviews

Wayne Shorter is one of the most significant jazz performers of modern times. He performed as part of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and then Miles Davis' band in the sixties before co-founding Weather Report with Joe Zawinul in the early seventies. This Montreux concert from 1996 features the Wayne Shorter Quintet and followed on from the release of his Grammy Award winning album "High Life". The main show is supplemented by bonus tracks from two earlier appearances at Montreux in 1991 and 1992 when he was in the company of the great Herbie Hancock.

Line-ups 1996: Wayne Shorter (saxophones), James Beard (keyboards), David Gilmore (guitars), Alphonso Johnson (bass), Rodney Holmes (drums). 1991: Wayne Shorter (saxophones), Herbie Hancock (keyboards), Stanley Clarke (bass), Omar Hakim (drums). 1992: Wayne Shorter (saxophones), Herbie Hancock (keyboards), Wallace Roney (trumpet), Ron Carter (bass), Tony Williams (drums).

Finally, a glimpse of what Herb Alpert sounds like in a concert setting. This was recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival in July of 1996, the 30th Anniversary of the Jazz Fest. Joined by keyboardist Jeff Lorber, trumpeter Alpert displays his funk-jazz side and holds his own quite well. This is not the Tijuana Brass by any means, so the TJB fans may not get into this, even though the band goes through a funky version of "Lonely Bull" and a jazz version of "Taste of Honey". One of the big highlights is sax/flute/keyboard man Gary Meek, who is a perfect foil for Alpert's trumpet. Herb even encourages Meek to engage in a few cat-and-mouse riffs. It's my guess most people have never heard Herb Alpert in this kind of setting, so be prepared to be shocked. While the majority of this set is in a funky setting, the DVD closes with a gorgeous version of "This Guy's In Love With You", done with Herb and guitarist Tony Maiden (of Rufus fame). There are some humorous moments throughout as well. A definite keeper!

Incidentally, this sounds even better with the DTS Surround sound. Great sound and picture!

I won't wax rhapsodically about Ritchie vs Steve, but instead I will just rate the dang DVD.

The musical direction is great. This compilation of tracks recorded at historic Montreux in '96 and '00 is just fantastic. The sound quality is better than most systems are capable of, so you'll probably get the best sound your equipment can give.

I own Purples Australia '99 as well as Scandinavian Nights, New Live and Rare, and the Come Hell or High Water reunion tour with Blackmore. Montreux is in the top two, and I have enjoyed it almost every night since it arrived last month. Paice, Morse, Lord, Glover and Gillan mesh perfectly [as always] and obviously have a great time playing together. They joke around occasionally, and theres a few surprizes that spontaneously erupt on stage [Sooo, thats 'funky Claude' eh? hmmm].

This DP line-up clicks extremely well together, and it shows [I can't believe I am the only one that noticed Gillan giving Blackmore the "finger" at the end of 'Paint it Black' on the High Water DVD. If you got it - watch the last second of that track .. BOING! Up goes the 'bird' at Ritchie, who should have gotten a butt kickin instead of just the finger].

If you are a purple fan, or just a music lover who enjoys those nice long live instrumental riffs of great rock & roll that highlight not only the guitarist but all facets of the bands talents, buy this disk. These guys blend better than Tequila and Lime. Theres plenty of deep-cut material on it I'd bet money you have not heard before and that in itself is reason enough.

The performance here is a very good one, but a bit tame for what Wayne was capable of - no small wonder, as it's comprised of his Grammy award winning cd, 'High Life' (which should be a clue to devoted fans - if it was more of what we've come to expect from Wayne, it would have been totally ignored by the Grammy voters and the public in general, unfortunately). It's one of his most listener-friendly recordings, not that there's anything wrong with that, especially if you expect to eat regularly and keep a roof over your head. Despite what I've said, the music and performance are thoroughly enjoyable.

The backing band is solid and supportive, but not capable of pushing or propelling Wayne into a sweat. The remarkable thing is that regardless, we eagerly await every breath, sound, bleat, bark or singularly superlative solo he always delivers without effort or deliberation. He was and still is a force of nature to be reckoned with in the pantheon of jazz lions and eternal legends, and there are too precious few documents of his live work available for those who understand and appreciate what contributions he's made to the instruments he plays and the history of jazz. I, for one, am eternally grateful. It's great to see Alphonso Johnson in the line-up; he's always been a favorite of mine and deserved more widespread recognition, but Jaco hit the scene a while later and stole his thunder. Most folks don't realize that half of 'Black Market' was played by Alphonso, and Jaco finished the recording; too often I've run into people who think its all Jaco's work.

There's no doubt that Wayne Shorter is one of the most interesting artists in jazz, always probing as a composer and an improviser. This DVD is subtitled "Live at Montreaux 1996", but the "bonus tracks", recorded at Montreaux in 1991 and 1992, are every bit as thrilling to watch and hear.

The 1996 band includes jim Beard on keyboards, David Gilmore on guitar, Alfonso Johnson on bass and Rodney Holmes at the drums. Five glittering compositions and Wayne Shorter's always surprising improvisations are once again the high point. Beard's and Gilmore's inventions support, and the rhythm section is solid, but it's Wayne Shorter that provides the energy, as the listener waits to hear what he'll say next. The man was and is a treasure.

For my money, the two bonus track bands that play two compositions each are even more interesting, in no small part because each features Wayne Shorter's longtime collaborator, Herbie Hancock. The 1991 group includes Stanley Clark at the top of his game on acoustic bass and Shorter's Weather Report cohort Omar Hakim on drums. While Omar Hakim seems a bit ill-suited for this music, Stanley Clark is wonderful here, and Herbie Hancock is superb, especially as a soloist. "Footprints" is one of Shorter's most-often performed compositions, but this version starts off almost unrecognizable, then shifts to a half-time funk feel before finally reaching it's more familiar 6/8. Shorter's final solo chorus is particularly wonderful, as is Hancock's following turn.

The 1992 band belongs, at least in part, to the great Tony Williams. He's fierce behind his familiar big yellow Gretsch kit, alternating cymbal washes with explosions of tom-toms and snare. This band includes Wallace Roney on trumpet, and he plays well.
