Herbie Hancock perhaps stated it best, when it comes to his longtime collaborator and close friend, Wayne Shorter. “He is at the top of his game; he is at the peak. And we don’t know whether that’s the peak or just another mountain.” At 81 years old, NEA Jazz Master Wayne Shorter is ever-present, remaining one of the most transformative figures in music.
Shorter will join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in celebration of his compositions, which have placed him heir to modern jazz architect Thelonious Monk as the poet laureate of jazz. From bebop to fusion, Shorter’s perpetually explorative music played pivotal roles in three essential ensembles: Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis’ Second Great Quintet, and Weather Report. A nine-time GRAMMY® Award winner, Shorter’sbroad-spectrum artistry has resulted in collaborations with artists from Milton Nascimento to Joni Mitchell.
Now, with the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis, audiences will experience a rare reinterpretation of some of Shorter’s most masterful material, which is deservedly regarded as the standards of our time.
