Tickets Now Available for August 8 Hollywood Bowl Show

Living legend Wayne Shorter and his Quartet open the evening, blazing through hard bop and fusion with the shining tone and angular lines that are Shorter’s trademarks. The late, brilliant bass pioneer Jaco Pastorius changed the instrument forever with fluid passages that leaped out of the rhythm section. The visionary player/arranger/composer/producer will be celebrated by a range of artists with music from the iconic Word of Mouth album reimagined by Grammy-winning arranger Vince Mendoza and clips from the new Jaco documentary.

Vince will musical director for this classic performance. Following is a list of artists scheduled to perform:
