Wayne Shorter, jazz pioneer dies at 89


Recommended Posts

I didn't see a diary about this, so I decided to post.  I believe he passed on March 2nd.  He was involved with many important groups and other jazz artists throughout his career; Art Blakely and Miles Davis.  He went on to form Weather Report and later his own band.  Beautiful tenor sax tone, I had also forgotten that he did the solo on the title track Aja with Steely Dan.    RIP :rose:

RIP, Wayne. :rose:      Thank you for the notice, Rhyta.  I saw him in concert once with Weather Report, front row seats and everything, it was great although I didn't really realize what genius I was listening to at the time.  I didn't know that about Aja, interesting!
