Wayne Shorter – Without a Net
At 80, Wayne Shorter is still making daring music. Along with three young musicians (pianist Danílo Perez, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade) who are at the top of their game, Shorter begins Without a Net with a haunting reinterpretation of “Orbits,” a classic from Miles Smiles, and never led up. The amazing, twenty-three-minute “Pegasus” showcases Shorter’s instrumental mastery as well as his compositional beauty. He truly is a living legend.
