Program notes

Wayne Shorter achieved legendary status in the jazz world long before this 1987 concert. His work with Art Blakey’s mythical Jazz Messengers in the early 60s ended up with him becoming the group’s Musical Director. Later, he joined Miles Davis’ second great quintet and was, according to Herbie Hancock, the only musician who brought music to Miles that “didn’t get changed.” Indeed, it was in jazz fusion that he solidified his reputation, that exploratory, style-blending sound defined in part by Weather Report, the group he co-founded.
