2019 Grammy Winner — Best Jazz Instrumental Album

Winner of the Audiophile Recording Of The Year Award from The Los Angeles and Orange County Audio Society, the world's largest audio society!

180-gram 3LP + 3CD with a graphic novel enclosed in a hardcover slipcase

"Emanon is a flawlessly conceived, recorded and produced package that at one time, not that long ago, I would have thought could only exist in an alternative universe where vinyl records ruled. It took the courage of a Pegasus to take action, but here we are!" — Music = 11/11; Sound = 11/11 — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com. Read the whole review here.

Jazz legend and 10-time Grammy winner Wayne Shorter is set for the August 24, 2018 release of his long-awaited project Emanon, his first release since 2013's Without A Net, which marked Shorter's momentous return to Blue Note Records where he began his heralded recording career in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers in 1959.

Emanon is an extraordinary musical and visual experience that presents a triple album of original music by Shorter performed by The Wayne Shorter Quartet-featuring Shorter on soprano and tenor saxophone with Danilo Perez on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Brian Blade on drums-with and without the 34-piece Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. The music is accompanied by a graphic novel penned by Shorter with Monica Sly and illustrated by Randy DuBurke. The title is taken from a Dizzy Gillespie and Milton Shaw composition "Noname" spelled backward.

Emanon is a physical-only release that will be available as a deluxe edition that packages three 180-gram vinyl LPs and 3CDs with the graphic novel enclosed in a beautiful hardcover slipcase.
