Late Night Pick: Wayne Shorter Quartet

Arsenio Hall is really mixing it up on his new talk show. Last night, it was underground hip-hop, tonight it's jazz legend Wayne Shorter and his Quartet. Wayne was a quadruple winner in this year’s Downbeat magazine critics poll, topping the categories for Jazz Artist, Jazz Album, Jazz Group and Soprano Saxophone. At 80, Wayne still relishes improvisation and performing "without a net". HERE is a recent interview with Wayne in the Cape Breton (Australia) Post. Arsenio is on WUPV in Richmond at 11 PM, the rest of you can check Arsenio's web site for times and channels.
