About The Artist:
Wayne Shorter’s career spans nearly thirty-five years, having crossed paths with many of history’s indisputable giants of music. With the 1985 release of Atlantis, Wayne Shorter reasserted himself as one of the world’s premier composers and performers of progressive music. The New York Times, during his triumphant 1985 debut solo tour called him “one of the most significant composers and individual saxophonists in jazz since he joined Art Blakey in 1959.”
Wayne has won three Grammies; one during his Weather Report years, another for work done in the motion picture “Round Midnight”, and recently for his latest solo album entitled High Life. He has received credit for feature saxophone performances in the motion pictures “Glengarry Glen Ross” and “The Fugitive”. Wayne also recently joined forces with quintessential jazz artist Herbie Hancock to release their 1 + 1 to great critical acclaim.
For many years, Wayne Shorter has succeeded in intermingling the popular and the progressive, proving him one of most remarkable minds in jazz history. The quality of that juxtaposition has resulted in his reputation as both daring band leader and consummate modernist. Wayne Shorter has earned these accolades through his incredible ability to improvise for more that four decades, and there is no doubt that he will continue to cultivate it in the future.
