Wayne Shorter Quartet 

When: Fri., Feb. 11, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $22-46

Septuagenarian saxophonist Wayne Shorter is a real living legend. Highly influential as one of the finest composers and sax players in modern jazz, Shorter was a key member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Weather Report and Miles Davis' second great quintet, among other heavyweight groups. He crafted a number of complex, progressive-minded compositions—"E.S.P." and "Lester Left Town" among them—each of which has entered the jazz canon. Having evolved from a Coltrane disciple into a fluid, expressive player with his own sound, Shorter continually finds fresh inspiration for his polyglot style. All-star sidemen Danilo Perez, John Patitucci and Brian Blade round out Shorter's current quartet. Tickets for the 8 p.m. performance are $22 to $46, or just $5 if you're a Duke student. —Spencer Griffith
