A long overdue project dedicated
to expounding the genius of one of the outstanding composers in contemporary
jazz. This special project will put a fresh
slant on the great Wayne Shorter,with specially written lyrics by Norma
Winstone and a creative use of sampling to develop a palette of colours,
textures and ambience reflecting Shorter`s own sensibilities.
The programme draws on different periods
throughout Shorter`s long, varied and prolific career. Robert Mitchell
- no slouch at the compositional game himself - has used all his experience
to put this outstanding `tribute band` together for this project.
