Wayne Shorter (born August 25 1933) is an American jazz composer and saxophonist, commonly regarded as one of the most important American jazz saxophonists and composers since the 1960s.

Shorter has recorded dozens of albums as a leader, and appeared on dozens more with others including Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers in the late 1950s, Miles Davis's second great quintet in the 1960s and the jazz-rock fusion band Weather Report, which Shorter co-led in the 1970s. Many of his compositions have become standards, perhaps most notably the composition "Footprints".
