What better way to mark the 80th birthday of legendary saxophonist Wayne Shorter! During this long evening of celebration?over 3 hours of music!?the guest of honour will share the stage with some illustrious friends. As the curtain rises, Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas will present the Sound Prints project. They’ll be followed by the star-studded trio of Geri Allen, Terri Lyne Carrington and Esperanza Spalding. And finally, Mr. Shorter himself takes the stage flanked by his redoubtable quartet, here to thrill us anew after their remarkable comprehensive show at last year’s Festival. It’s an absolutely historic concert event!
