Part of Hancher's Golden Anniversary Season

Musical soulmates Danilo Pérez, John Patitucci, and Brian Blade have long performed together as essential members of the Wayne Shorter Quartet. Embracing the message of their mentor and friend, these three virtuosos celebrate Shorter’s music and introduce new compositions with the Children of the Light trio. Their conversation is an intense collective improvisation, unfolding and constructing the music like a rhythmic and smoldering chamber recital.
