  • The Overture Center is hosting Passing the Bass, a global tribute to legendary bassist and educator Richard Davis, NEA Jazz Master and Professor Emeritus at The Mead Witter School of Music, UW-Madison, on Thursday, October 11, 7:00pm, Capitol Theater. It’s a ticketed event, but tickets are free (limited to 2 per person) on a first come, first served basis until they’re gone, available in person or by phone at the Overture Box Office, or on the @overturecenter website. The event includes a concert by some of Davis’s closest collaborators over his decades of making music: saxophonist Javon Jackson, violinist Aska Kaneko, pianist Angelica Sanchez, bassist Peter Dominguez, and drummer Andrew Cyrille. There will also be video and photo tributes, as well as a display of never-before-seen memorabilia from Davis’s personal archives set up in the Capitol Theater lobby from 6-7:00pm.

  • Wayne Shorter’s new Blue Note Records release explodes the concept of an album. Emanon [COMP DISC 32989] contains 3 CDs—one studio recording of a four-part suite Shorter composed and performed with his Quartet and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and two recordings of The Wayne Shorter Quartet Live in London performing some of the suite along with other compositions—housed inside a binding that also contains a graphic novel of the same name, written by Shorter and Monica Sly, and illustrated by Randy DuBurke. It’s a lot to take in, and it’s ready to be taken out of the library. #wayneshorter #wayneshorterquartet #orpheuschamberorchestra #monicasly #randyduburke #bluenoterecords #emanon #millsmusiclibrary
