World-renowned musician and composer Wayne Shorter and jazz artist Esperanza Spalding are coming to Detroit's Orchestra Hall on November 2!
Shorter will perform his newly commissioned work, “Gaia” -- which premiered in Los Angeles in February and has only been played in two other cities.
“Gaia,” commissioned by the Detroit Jazz Festival, was written by Shorter to showcase the talented, Grammy award-winning vocalist Spalding. In addition to Spalding, the unique piece will be performed by the Wayne Shorter Quartet – including saxophonist and composer, Shorter; pianist and 2013 Detroit Jazz Festival Artist in Residence, Danilo Pérez; bassist John Patitucci; and drummer Brian Blade – and the DSO, conducted by Vince Mendoza.
