Wayne Shorter Quartet  (Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))

"A band of spellbinding intuition, with an absolute commitment to the spirit of discovery, it has had an incalculable influence on the practice of jazz in the 21st century."-The New York Times

"Wayne Shorter is one of the greatest living jazz musicians." -NPR Music

One of the most influential saxophonists and composers in modern music, at 82, icon Wayne Shorter is a jazz titan, a prolific visionary whose work is history making and astounding. Shorter's trajectory has embodied continual exploration and unencumbered momentum. His past includes Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and the Miles Davis Quintet, followed by the formation of his own band, the Weather Report, in the '70s. Today, he is unstoppable. With his all-star band combining John Patitucci on bass, pianist Danilo Perez and drummer Brian Blade, Downbeat magazine's Critics Poll named the ensemble the 2014 "Jazz Group of the Year." It "celebrates humanity's hope for harmony," says The Guardian (UK). An entire generation of musicians sees Wayne Shorter as a humble master who has created a timeless vocabulary - as vital as it is unbound.
