Volume Four of our Jazz Master Series finds us at the 1991 Festival di Verona and a brilliant set by Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Stanley Clarke and Omar Hakim. Another excellent audience capture from our anonymous benefactor.
One of my favorite quartets with every one at the top of their game and totally in sync with one another. I don't believe the setlist varied much for this tour but the improvs of course are tremendous. I'm not sure what the title of Track 6 is but we've named it Blues after Herbie requests Stanley kick it off with one of his signature blues lines. There are a couple of tunes not here that appear to have been played at other shows but I was not able to nail it down.
This one is once again highly recommended for even casual jazz fans, extremely accesible and a jazz master class.
