Description:

Derrick Gardner and Darius Hampton, conductors 

Jazz saxophonist, composer, and bandleader Wayne Shorter rose to prominence in the late 1950s as a member of, and composer for, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. He later joined Miles Davis’s Second Great Quintet and co-founded the jazz fusion group Weather Report. Many of his compositions have become jazz standards, and his music has earned worldwide recognition and critical praise, including 11 Grammy Awards. The Jazz Orchestra embarks on a journey through ten arrangements of classic Wayne Shorter compositions, representing the innovations in jazz that were pushing the envelope of musical possibilities.
