Footprints by Michelle Mercer
" I read this while I was working at IMN (Wayne Shorter's booking agency) and befriended the author (Michelle Mercer). Wayne Shorter is such an amazing person, so this book is great :) "
Footprints by Michelle Mercer
" This is a really cool book. Mercer does a great job of capturing Shorter's quirky personality. And his life is a history of jazz, so you get all the cool stories about Art Blakey, Miles, and Weather Report. Very inspiring. "
Footprints by Michelle Mercer
" Wayne Shorter is out there. And in a good way. This very involved, very intensely researched biography was a rare page-turner. Even better if you have a collection of his music to listen to while you read. "
