The Wayne Shorter Quartet returned from an 8-year recording hiatus to produce an album which, as the title slyly alludes, is a collection of live performances. That the majority of his recorded releases with this quartet are live recordings reveals that Shorter views the strength of this ensemble to be the energy created while on tour. Shorter, who turned 80 the year this record was released, shows no signs of slowing down. The centerpiece of the album is ‘Pegasus’, 23-minute back-and-forth between an orchestrated composition featuring the Imani Winds and the free-wheeling improvisation heard.
Emanon is an extraordinary musical and visual experience that presents a triple album of original music by Shorter performed by The Wayne Shorter Quartet-featuring Shorter on soprano and tenor saxophone with Danilo Perez on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Brian Blade on drums-with and without the 34-piece Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. The music is accompanied by a graphic novel penned by Shorter with Monica Sly and illustrated by Randy DuBurke. In February 2013 upon the release of Without A Net, The Wayne Shorter Quartet performed four of Shorter’s compositions with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Shorter immediately brought the quartet and orchestra into the studio to record those same four pieces: Pegasus, Prometheus Unbound, Lotus, and The Three Marias.
Wayne has re-signed to Blue Note Records, and has released his first album as a leader for the iconic label in 43 years with the release of Without A Net, a searing new album with his long-running quartet featuring pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci, and drummer Brian Blade. Without A Net is a 9-track musical thrill ride that consists of live recordings from the Wayne Shorter Quartet’s European tour in late 2011, the one exception being the 23-minute tone poem Pegasus which features the quartet with The Imani Winds recorded at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

Master jazz saxophonist Wayne Shorter has blended his music with the visual arts on Emanon. Shorter borrowed the title Emanon, which is no name spelled backwards. It includes music performed by Shorter’s quartet (filled out by pianist Danilo Perez, drummer Brian Blade, and bassist John Patitucci) as well as the 34-piece Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Shorter’s work with the orchestra stemmed from a conversation with Miles Davis.
