Wayne Shorter

Today on Ecléctico you're listening to the great jazz saxophonist and composer, Wayne Shorter. His influence on music and composition is groundbreaking, making his mark in jazz in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis's second great quintet, and Weather Report, a jazz fusion group he co-founded in the 1970s. He also led his own groups, as you'll hear on this sextet recording. You'll go deeper with an excerpt from an article on the Jazz Desk blog.

Access to the newsletter archive—with links to stream, buy, and read more about the music—is for Ecléctico members only.
