We are sad to learn of the passing of Wayne Shorter this week aged 89. One of the eternal greats of jazz who was a central force in three of the 20th Century’s most important jazz groups: Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis’ second great quintet in the late 60’s (leading into Davis’ electric period) and the globally revered Weather Report which Shorter co-founded alongside pianist Joe Zawinul in 1970. He leaves an incredible musical legacy, watch out for a feature of his albums in the next few days.
