May 1965 (6 items; TT = 41:57)
Slug's Saloon, New York
Source/Quality: RB (B-)

Wayne Shorter (ts); Herbie Hancock (p); Art Davis (b); Tony Williams (d)

1 Eye of the Hurricane (H. Hancock) 9:29
2 Just in Time (W. Shorter) 9:01
3 Oriental Folk Song (W. Shorter) 11:13
4 Virgo (W. Shorter) 6:35

Execrable quality, but this is the Miles Davis Quintet minus its leader, with Art Davis sitting in for Ron Carter. It's possible that venue is the Village Vanguard, but Wayne Shorter remembers it as Slug's Saloon. The recording was broadcast on WBAI-FM. I'm grateful to Bob Belden for help with this session.
