A jazz series curated by Christine Tobin and Phil Robson

Our next installment of the wonderful Tobin’s Run on 51 pays homage to the music of living legend Wayne Shorter, one of the most influential composers and saxophonists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Shorter’s seminal body of work—from the Miles Davis Quintet, early recordings with Art Blakey, and Weather Report’s groundbreaking fusion, to collaborations with Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell, and prominent Brazilian musicians like Milton Nascimento—has earned him 10 Grammy Awards and a formidable position in the annals of jazz history. He remains a pioneer to this day, generating new music with his own groups and the likes of Esperanza Spalding, Nora Jones, and some of the brightest names in contemporary jazz.
