On Radio 3 for a week from tonight: the Wayne Shorter Quartet

Giants of Jazz: Wayne Shorter

In a broadcast recorded live back on 8 October at London’s Barbican, the legendary saxophonist Wayne Shorter – ex-Miles Davis sideman, founder member of fusion giants Weather Report, and colossus of the saxophone – is in concert. Bassist John Patitucci, formerly a band-member with pianist Chick Corea, is in the group, alongside drummer Brian Blade and pianist Danilo Perez.

The gig will be broadcast tonight, and then be available on iPlayer for a week online.

Surely one not to be missed.

And here’s a the group live in concert back in 2003 with Shorter’s classic, Footprints.
