New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Emanon, the acclaimed new album from Jazz legend, 11-time GRAMMY winner, and recent Kennedy Center Honors recipient Wayne Shorter, is now available digitally to download or stream. The expansive triple-album was originally released as a physical set on vinyl and CD packaged with its companion graphic novel which was co-written by Shorter and Monica Sly and illustrated by Randy DuBurke. The graphic novel is also available now as a digital booklet with the album download on iTunes and Amazon.

Emanon features original music by Shorter performed by The Wayne Shorter Quartet—Shorter on soprano and tenor saxophone, Danilo Perez on piano, John Patitucci on bass, and Brian Blade on drums—with and without the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Emanon was awarded Best Jazz Instrumental Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards. It was also named the #1 Jazz Album of 2018 by The New York Times and NPR Music, in addition to Best of 2018 picks in Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, Billboard, Los Angeles Times, JazzTimes, Jazziz, and more.

"Mr. Shorter stands among jazz's great composers. His works form touchstones for the development of jazz musicianship and vistas from which even casual listeners expand their horizons… Mr. Shorter's music has long conveyed both an elder's wisdom and a childlike sense of wonder...This package frames such ideas with splendor, elevating his stature in unexpected ways."—Wall Street Journal

"one of the most ambitious jazz projects of the last 25 years, brimming with ingenuity and intergalactic lasers…It is an exclusive delve into an artist who has shared his innermost vibrations with the world for more than 60 years."—Los Angeles Times

"Emanon is another milestone, combining bold orchestral statements with the mercurial spontaneity of Shorter's remarkable long-running quartet… When Shorter's soprano sax soars above the full 30-odd member ensemble, improvising exuberant responses to the composed passages, the effect is magical."—Rolling Stone
