A great day for Shorter's towering tenor

WAYNE SHORTER towers over most other tenor saxophone players -- as both a player and a composer.
Shorter's work is impressive, whether as a solo artist, celebrated MILES DAVIS sideman or co-leader of WEATHER REPORT.
Today, I'm listening to Shorter's work on the 1960 ART BLAKEY & THE JAZZ MESSENGERS album, "A NIGHT IN TUNISIA."
Along with his stellar playing, Shorter provided his composition "Sincerely Diana," the album's second track.
It sounds perfect on an unseasonably warm day like today -- or any day, really.
