Tenor and soprano saxophonist Wayne Shorter returns to USC with his quartet for a night of exceptional jazz.

Wayne Shorter has been one of the most original

instrumentalists and composers in jazz for nearly 40 years and has

created an influential body of work that has established him as one of

music's most prolific recording artists.

For many years,

Shorter has succeeded in intermingling the popular and the progressive.

The quality of that juxtaposition has resulted in his reputation as

both daring band leader and consummate modernist. Shorter has earned

these accolades through his ability to improvise musically and

creatively for more than four decades.

The winner of three

Grammys, he has also received credit for feature saxophone performances

in the motion pictures “Glengarry Glen Ross” and “The Fugitive.” Wayne

recently joined forces with the innovative jazz artist Herbie Hancock

to release their “1 + 1.”
