Product description

Review

Praise for Footprints: "Mercer's book is pleasurable and empathetic, essential for anyone who wants to get closer to this inscrutable genius." - The New Republic " [I]t's impossible to imagine a book that would give any better understanding of this enigmatic man." - Los Angeles Times "In her exceptional book...Michelle Mercer captures the musical and spiritual essence of one of jazz's living legends." - Billboard "Intelligent and revealing... [Footprints] shows how quite ordinary cultural material can be the source of extraordinary art." - Financial Times "Mercer traces the low notes and high notes of Shorter's life with a storyteller's ear. ...Those who have never read a book about jazz will find that, along with this engaging biography, they've accidentally learned about an American art form, too." - Kansas City Star --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
