Here's Wayne w/ Miles from the first year he was playing in the band. This is when he was on the old (Buescher) Bundy and his metal Link. I know that he was using an 11 tip near the later half of the 1960s, but I'm not sure if this is it... Man, this band is by far the best.

So great:

Wayne.... he's such a great composer I think his unique improvisation style gets overlooked. I like him quite a lot, and of course this group with Miles was transcendant.

How did Miles do it? Talk about an ear for talent... he collaborated with so many great players over the years from Bird right up to the group with Marcus Miller and Kenny Garrett. The great chameleon.

I must admit, having listened to Wayne Shorter on many occasions, his abstract and angular soloing style is something I have difficulty coming to grips with.

The one tune that places Wayne permanently on my playlist is 'A Remark You Made' which is for me, one of the most truly remarkable and transcendent tenor performances I have ever heard.
