National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Wayne Shorter gives a master class with Berklee Global Jazz Institute artistic director Danilo Pérez and BGJI faculty member John Patitucci, who are also members of his quartet. They will discuss  "zero gravity," the concept of music, and the kind of improvisation that the quartet has been been working on for the past 11 years. BGJI students will also perform in concert. The event is free and open to the public and part of Berklee's Global Jazz Summit for Humanity and Peace, April 25-27.
