ONLINE BROADCAST (Originally Recorded APR 30, 2017)
- For this special broadcast, 100% of Tip Jar proceeds will go directly to Wayne Shorter for his ongoing medical needs.
This fifth part of our ongoing Wayne Shorter Celebration series features masterful performances by Wayne and his quartet, filmed during his residency in April 2017. Wayne has led a legendary, near-mythic career spanning more than half a century that included monumental memberships in Art Blakey’s star-making Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis’ iconic 1960s quintet, and the fusion superband Weather Report in addition to an incomparable path as a leader.
The NEA Jazz Master, 2015 GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and 2018 Kennedy Center Honoree is, simply, the music’s most influential living instrumentalist and composer. His longevity as a creative force isn’t as astounding as the fact that he’s spent the past two decades leading his most prodigious and consequential band with pianist Danilo Pérez, bassist John Patitucci, and drummer Brian Blade.

The coronavirus separates us, threatening the fabric of community – but music connects, which is why we’ve launched Fridays at Five. It’s what we need right now: a new series of weekly pre-recorded concerts that aspire to connect you – to music, to musicians, to the warm and unique feeling of experiencing live music at the SFJAZZ Center.
For just $5 a month ($60 annually), you can become a Digital Member and tune in each Friday at 5 PM (PT) for the latest concert. Make it a regular date. Bring a glass of wine and cozy up – we think you will discover that digital technology can reveal new dimensions of musical performance. Fridays at Five is not your typical video concert series; it is designed to take you inside the music.
