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).
