As the acclaimed rhythm section for the Wayne Shorter Quartet, this trio generates a sonic psychodrama each time the living legend hits the stage. Long story short, they’re responsible for some of the most engaging improv being made these days. On their own, Danilo Peréz, John Patitucci and Brian Blade are all about the creative recalibration of melodic motifs and rhythmic events – there’s not a second in their work where anything stays still. Keep an eye out for the deep buoyancy – go ahead, call it swing – that will the music’s secret weapon.
