Wayne Shorter Quintet Live at Estival Jazz Festival RSI Archives 1987

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.
