WAYNE SHORTER
Houston 1985 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Rockefeller’s, Houston, Texas; December 15, 1985. Early show. New to circulation. Very good mono soundboard.

Thanks to goody for sharing the show at Dime.

goody noted:

Prepare yourselves for a bit of a strange experience as you listen to this one. There’s definitely plenty of Wayne here, which is, after all, what brings you all here today. However, there’s definitely a whole lot of processed drums with distant keyboards when he’s not playing, lots of the time, and it’s not as if Tom Brechtlein is playing much more than your basic beats (although he’s also playing some smokin’ hot stuff otherwise, largely) so I’ll admit - it’s a bit boring when that’s what’s going on. You will then strain as you try to hear some of Tom Canning’s keyboard work. It’s the price we sometimes pay for the luxury and clarity of a SBD recording. That said, I heartily present to you (with my many thanks as always for the truck this happened to fall out the back of)…

  2. Don’t worry Wayne, you’re not the only one who’s shorter than me

    By Uncle Miltie on Feb 23, 2017

  3. I’m the biggest Dick , Ask Ava

    By Frank Sinatra on Feb 23, 2017

  4. I worked with Frank Sinatra on the film Lady in Cement and had heard about his prowess in the sack , Of course I was curious and had to find out if it was true , One thing led to another and before I could scream ouch Frank popped out the biggest cock I had ever seen and I’ve seen plenty. I swear it was so long and thick I could have ridden it like a see saw , He proceeded to fuck me for several hours only taking breaks between organisms , The crew had to shut down filming for two weeks because I was too sore to walk straight. All that said Frank wasn’t the biggest , that was Jim Brown in a later film but I’ll tell that story later tootaloo

  5. Back under the rocks with the trolls. Thanks for this soundboard recording, wish Wayne could make it to Jazz Fest this year. He did the first weekend last year, the one that didn’t rain out.

  6. Back under the trolls when they rock their nuts on your chin, Tonio

    By Tony Morron on Feb 23, 2017

  7. Thanks very much for this show big ozine! Soundboards can definitely vary in quality and some sound downright odd; not odd like this corey no life jerk posting his stupid dick stuff, but odd sounding.

  8. Thanks big o, love Wayne Shorter processed drums or not

    By Jerrys Red Shirt on Feb 23, 2017

  9. OK ,ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,IVE MOSTLY NOT COMMENTED ON THIS BULLSHIT INVOLVING PORNO TALK AMONG OTHER TROLL RELATED TOPICS MAINLY BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE BASICALLY MINDLESS IDIOTS WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS.PLUS PEOPLE WILL THINK WHAT THEY WANT TO THINK SO ITS POINTLESS ANYWAY.IVE READ ALL OF THE COMMA/ PUNCTUATION THEORIES TO WHICH IVE SEEN MANY PEOPLE WITH SIMILAR TYPING STYLES.AND OTHERS WITH DIFFERENT STYLES SHARED BY MANY OTHERS.GRANTED THIS BLOG HAS INDEED BECOME A TROLLFEST MAINLY INSTIGATED BY THE MINDLESS CHILDLIKE GEORGE LINDSAY LOOK ALIKE .HOWEVER OTHER THAN MY OCCASIONAL PAST POLITICAL RANTS,IVE ALWAYS BEEN RESPECTFUL HERE .THATS ALL I INTEND TO SAY ON THE TOPIC.IM CERTAIN THAT THE BELIEVERS WILL BELIEVE WHAT THE CHOOSE TO BELIEVE REGARDLESS

    By COREY M on Feb 24, 2017

  10. Mister Corey ? Stay calm, I’d just like you to put that straightjacket on and gently take your medecine.

    By Nurse Ratchett on Feb 24, 2017

  11. So you’re just misunderstood and unfairly maligned eh corey? I don’t think so, there are no other posters here at big o or anywhere else on the web besides you using alternate punctuation and this is not an invitation to invent a few. Are we supposed to think its just a coincidence that boom, carlos, miltie, eli etc all appeared after you got here and they all use the same punctuation as you?

    By All Things on Feb 24, 2017

  12. Yawn! The troll-fest gets so boring. Like a bunch of gerbils running endlessly on a wheel.

    By Walter on Feb 24, 2017

  13. Walter- those gerbils you endlessly stick up your flabby ass aren’t boring, are they? Moron.

    Neither are……………………….. these nuts on your chin.

    By Walter Moron on Feb 24, 2017

  14. Agree Walter , as I said the people who believe will continue to believe which is why I rarely comment when my name comes up , The only controversial thing I ever discussed here was politics and all the left wingers blew a gasket so I said what the fuck , There are many dumbass trolls here but I have no interest in discussing stupid topics like dick size and acting like Rocky Balboa on Qualudes or discussing testicles on chins . It really doesn’t matter what you say , People used to call me DARTH whoever the fuck he is Whatever I’m starting to agree with the people calling for the removal of the comments , What purpose do they serve?

    By Corey M on Feb 24, 2017

  15. This shit doesn’t go on on any other music site just this one

    By Quincy on Feb 24, 2017

  16. Yeah I’ve even seen St Barth attacked , the teflon commentator

    By Tony C on Feb 24, 2017

  17. Corey M is the troll problem here, and his lying comments denying it, as well as the false identities like Tony C agreeing with him, are part of that.

    By ShutTheFuckUpCorey on Feb 24, 2017

  18. fuck up we can all agree that there is nothing false about these nuts as they continue to bounce on your chin

    By shutthefucupcorey Moron on Feb 24, 2017

  19. “Whatever I’m starting to agree with the people calling for the removal of the comments , What purpose do they serve?”

    Where are you gonna lie and whine, then ?

    By Corey Moron on Feb 24, 2017

  20. Bend over again Moron

    By Harry Reems on Feb 24, 2017

  21. Can’t believe I’m commenting about this,The guy just said it’s not him,also said anything people believe wouldn’t change whether he commented or not .You people are exactly like Walter said gerbils running on a wheel. It wouldn’t matter if this whole place was cleaned out tomorrow,more idiots would take their place.you fools really believe that only a few act like retards when in fact most people are fools and idiots . The only difference between the world today and 50 years ago is that more people are on the planet and the web has made them more visible More people,hence more fools. The planet hasn’t gotten any bigger and the brains of humans has gotten smaller obviously

  22. This place is a good example of what happens when there is no moderator or screener. No rules or regulations! The inmates running the asylum

    By Derrick on Feb 24, 2017

  23. Try to just dig the tunes and ignore this crap , know it’s hard this shits in your face all the time every post !

    By Derrick on Feb 24, 2017

  24. 22 comments and only two about Wayne Shorter. The person who said what purpose do these comments serve is right on

    By James on Feb 24, 2017

  25. Hey nobody but you mentions Darth and nobody compares you with Darth but if you insist-Darth was a high end kind of troll, more like a sociopath and a lot smarter than you but just as bad. You act like teen kids would; insults, dick talk, threats and denials, bad language, spelling and grammar. You’ve been trying to kiss Barths ass ever since he tore you up when you first got here…when you’re not anonymously insulting him that is.

    By All Things on Feb 24, 2017

  26. It really is time to stop all the postings…bad enough when we get requests for obscure crap…. but now the trollfest that greets every single new addition is well and truly beyond a joke….give it up now bigO…there is now no positive use for the response option

    Well done all you fuckwit yankee trolls…yee haaaaa !

    By Dale on Feb 24, 2017

  27. No matter how you call yourself Corey. Signing Stanley just to keep whining and crying on yourself won’t change anything: you’ll always be a paranoid … MORON !!!

    By Stanley Moron on Feb 24, 2017

  28. Corey agree with Walter who agree with Stanley who waits for Eli to agree with him when he’s finished with his next Mancini post. How nice to see so many names for only one … MORON !!!

    By Moron's Moron on Feb 24, 2017

  29. Dale yehaaaa is what you scream every day while these nuts are bouncing on your chin

    By Dale Moron on Feb 25, 2017

  30. bad enough when we get requests for obscure crap….
    Well done all you fuckwit yankee trolls…yee haaaaa !

    By Dale on Feb 24, 2017
