Wayne Shorter Quartet: The Unfolding
Description:

Wayne Shorter Quartet: The Unfolding, a commissioned work.

This new piece is inspired by recent scientific interpretations of the Big Bang theory that describe the expansion of the universe as an “unfolding” of matter in the time and space continuum.

FEATURING BRIAN BLADE, JOHN PATITUCCI, AND DANILO PÉREZ WITH THE FSU CHAMBER WINDS, CONDUCTED BY RICHARD CLARY

Wayne Shorter is one of the most influential saxophonists and composers in the pantheon of modern music, let alone jazz. Regarded as a pioneer since his emergence in the 1950s, Shorter’s trajectory has restlessly embodied continual exploration and unencumbered momentum. A generation of musicians and fans see and hear him as a humble master who created a timeless vocabulary as vital as it is unbound.

The Unfolding is a contemporary work commissioned by Opening Nights Performing Arts, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Monterey Jazz Festival, and the Jazztopad Festival/National Forum of Music (Wroclaw, Poland).

“Wayne Shorter is one of the greatest living jazz musicians.” – NPR Musi
