Billboard / Current News:
The Pledge Music crowdfunding goal has been met, but the fundraising for Wayne Shorter: Zero Gravity continues.
See the article in Variety, linked to from below...
Some say that jazz has made legends. Others say that legends have made jazz. In Wayne Shorter's case, both sides are correct...
"Wayne Shorter is one of the greatest musicians and composers of our time. At age 80, we witness him at the height of his powers and performing with one of the most incredible bands he’s ever assembled."
-- Don Was, President, Blue Note Records.
"Wayne Shorter unveiled the future of American music at New Orleans Jazz Fest"
-- New Orleans Times-Picayune, May 5, 2013
Wayne got started with Horace Silver back in the '50s. He moved on to Maynard Ferguson, then to Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. He joined Miles in 1964.
In 1970 he formed Weather Report, together with Joe Zawinul and Miroslav Vitous.
Known as much for his composing as for his playing, many of Wayne's complex and sinuous melodies have become jazz standards. His latest release is Without a Net, Blue Note Records, 2013.
A pledge campaign is currently in progress for production of the documentary Wayne Shorter: Zero Gravity, directed by Dorsay Alavi. You can be a part of it...see Crowdfunding below!
