Wayne Shorter Booking Agency Profile

Book Wayne Shorter for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Veteran jazz legend Wayne Shorter tours with his critically acclaimed quartet featuring Danilo Perez, John Patitucci and Brian Blade in support of his new Universal/Verve release Footprints live! This quartet is making some of the most thrilling, imaginative, improvised music since the celebrated Miles Davis quintet of the late 60s that featured Shorter. Wayne Shorter's career spans nearly thirty-five years, having crossed paths with many of history's indisputable giants of music. Born August 25, 1933 in Newark, New Jersey, Shorter went to Arts High School and later graduated from New York University. He served in the US Army from 1956 to 1958; after which, he joined bands led by Horace Silver and Maynard Ferguson. Next, he joined Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. His five years as one of Blakey's Messengers clearly established him as a newcomer to watch due to winning the number one New Star Saxophonist" Downbeat poll for 1962 and came in second place for Best Composer..
