NYU’s Wayne Shorter ensemble performs in our studio for Jazz appreciation month: Photos, Video

This installment features the NYU Wayne Shorter Ensemble, which saxophonist Dave Pietro formed a decade ago. “For me, personally, this is like the perfect gig,” Pietro says, “because Wayne went to NYU – he’s a graduate, in 1956 he got a music ed degree there, I believe – and he’s from Newark.”

The session features a handful of Shorter compositions, beginning with “Toy Tune,” from the album Etcetera, and “Scourn,” from The Young Lions.

MUSICIANS: Dave Pietro, soprano saxophone; Andrew Golub, tenor saxophone; Alejandro Espinosa, trombone; Guillaume Muller, guitar; Andrew Andron, piano; Gui Duvignau, bass; Aaron Jennings, drums.
