Wayne Shorter

When I first heard Wayne play I new I just heard my favorite Jazz Master! There’s always something about a performer that captures what we sometimes can’t explain. The best I can say is “I love This Cat”! Over the years and after 25 albums or more as well as seeing him live, he still has the same impact on me as when I was much younger. A true arranger and Art Blakey Messenger Wayne is at the very top of any jazz musician, at any era! His work with Miles, Coltrane, Zawinul is stellar and although I appreciate all is wonderful works of art, I’m still most impressed in his accomplishments at the beginning of his career when I first heard him at age 19, WOW!
