Wayne Shorter Quartet – The Three Marias (from Emanon)
Welcome to Wayne Shorter Week! When I saw the lamentably late, legendary virtuoso genre alchemist had not been featured here before, I knew I should dedicate a my guest-hosting week to the many facets of his career.
Here we have a performance of a movement from Emanon, a three-disc concept album that Shorter recorded at 85. His quartet at the time included drummer Brian Blade, pianist Danilo Pérez, and bassist John Patitucci, all of whom play in this performance. The album included a graphic novel co-written by Shorter about an eponymous hero (a hat tip to Dizzy Gillespie’s “Noname”) whose adventures traverse a multiverse and reflect aspects of Shorter’s Nichiren Buddhist spiritual philosophy.
