My love of Wayne Shorter’s music started in the mid- late 80s when I was introduced to the album “Native Dancer” by the South African musicians with whom I was studying.

For this project, which I will be debuting at and have developed specifically for Jazz Café POSK; I have applied my lyrics, voice and poetry to a selection of my favourite Wayne Shorter compositions.

For this gig I have chosen to go back to the 60s and to feature mainly, the work of his Blue Note period

I will be supported by some of our finest jazz musicians

With the band, I share the stage and frontline with saxophone and backline with the traditional jazz trio of piano, double bass and drums

We hope that you will enjoy this very special project

Line up:

Esther Bennett – vocal

Brandon Allen – saxes

Tim Lapthorn – piano

Oli Hayhurst – double bass

Flavio La Vigni – drums
