Guessing...

Wayne Shorter doesn't much need to record anymore, but wishing he would, at least live. His current quartet is a creativity machine.

Reading this, I'm also wishing he would record what he's up to right now. He's always been a favorite of mine.

Hello Janet. I think the quartet he tours with (Danielo Perez on piano, John Patitucci on bass and Brian Blades drums) is about as tight and symbiotic as it gets. I rate them with Branford Marsalis' group and it must remind Shorter of the way the second great Miles Davis quintet fed off each other. He's as creative as he was then, too,
