Wayne Shorter

Maestro Wayne Shorter, who's incredible legacy of music I came to know through his work with Miles Davis, has moved on to his next journey. I highly recommend to my artist friends, but not excluding the non-artists, the open letter this visionary penned with another master artist, Herbie Hancock. Shorter was a seeker of peace, of human decency and kindness. He did not make music with a chip on his shoulder and ego in his motives. It is why he is beloved by many musicians and artists, not just jazzers. I encourage you to read the letter from these two masters at Hancock's website: https://www.herbiehancock.com/2016/12/10/an-open-letter-to-the-next-generation-of-artists/  PHOTO: Robert Ashcroft
