Author Comments

"Footprints" is a jazz standard composed by Wayne Shorter, first appearing on his 1966 album Adam's Apple.
The "A" section has four bars of Cmin, two bars of Fmin, back to two bars of Cmin, then a bar of D7 and Db7, and finally two bars of Cmin (well I added a G79 there, so last bar can be Cmin G79).

Track composed by Wayne Shorter.
Arranged, sequenced, played and recorded by Mihai Sorohan in 2011.

Jazz is an art form that depends on its antecedents.

The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking "Is there a meaning to music?" My answer would be, "Yes", And "Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?" My answer to that would be "No."

Jazz washes away the dust of every day life.

Thank you for your outstanding contribution to the audio portal, please create more like this.

Thanks for the very artistic review. I hope I'll put a trumpet solo on this track soon :)

Thank you.

Thank you for putting such a great recording of one of my favorite songs ever on Newgrounds.

I seriously wasn't expecting anything like this when you said you were going to do modal jazz. I thought you'd go with something cheesy like Blue in Green, or something like Maiden Voyage.

I will most likely make myself a little solo out of this recording, given that I now have proper software and hardware. Wich me luck, I'll send you a PM when it's done!
