EFG London Jazz Festival 2013: Wayne Shorter Quartet
Wayne Shorter returns to London to celebrate his 80th birthday year with the stellar quartet of Danilo Perez (piano) John Patitucci (bass) and drummer Brian Blade.
Expect rushes of individual virtuosity and intuitive interplay in the rare opportunity to see Wayne in two different settings: firstly with his quartet and in the second half of the concert bringing the quartet together with the BBC Concert Orchestra to play a new repertoire of Wayne's music.

This event takes place at Barbican Centre, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
A wholly distinctive saxophonist and a hugely respected composer, Wayne has been consistently at the cutting edge of jazz since he joined Art Blakey in the early 60s, followed by landmark stints with Miles Davis and Weather Report before leading his own groups. His music transcends genre and keeps the improvisational genius and surprise of jazz burning at the centre.
