Wayne Shorter RIP 3/2

Weather Report has lost another great reporter.


Wayne Shorter was a superb tenor saxophonist! He was blessed with a long life and active very productive career. His composition “Infant Eyes “ is among my favorite Jazz ballads. Although life ends for us all, some leave behind a body of work that can be accessed and appreciated. R.I.P. Mr. Shorter.


I was driving around yesterday morning listening to Radio Jazz FM from Poland—they were playing weather Report — the Legendary Live Tapes 1978-1981 as a tribute to Wayne.  Well done. 

One of my favorite tenor players and composers and a giant in both spheres. 

In fact, his Blue Note and Davis Quintet recordings would be my choice for "desert island" Jazz discs.
