Review: Wayne Shorter Quartet "Without a Net"
Tue, 19 Mar 2013

As a fearless purveyor of new directions in jazz, Wayne Shorter keeps moving forward while players half his age seem content just to coast. It helps to have such a dynamic combo behind him; pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade have more than ten years as a unit under their belt, and they churn out a polyrhythmic furor that gives Shorter the room he needs to take flight. Patitucci is at his fluid best throughout, probing the freestyle edges of “Orbits” and mixing equal parts lyricism and technical precision on the epic “Pegasus.”
