Fans will soon get the chance to listen to a live recording by a multi-generational supergroup featuring NEA Jazz Masters Wayne Shorter and Terri Lyne Carrington along with Leo Genovese and Esperanza Spalding.

Live at the Detroit Jazz Festival captures the group’s historic one-time performance five years ago on Sept. 3, 2017. It was one of Shorter’s last performances before his retirement.

Shorter took the stage with a stacked quartet composed of former protegés and collaborators who are now established as notable figures in their own right. With the musicians having been given only a sparse outline of the music before the performance, listeners will hear this stellar quartet’s high level of spontaneous interplay on full display.

“We rehearsed some themes earlier that day, but the preparation was really from our lives and profound experiences with each other,” Carrington recalls.
