Wayne Shorter was born in Newark, New Jersey, and attended Newark Arts High School. He was encouraged by his father to take up the saxophone as a teenager (his brother Alan became a trumpeter). In 1964, Miles Davis persuaded Wayne Shorter to join the Miles Davis Quintet alongside Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. Davis had been searching for a saxophonist to replace John Coltrane for some time, and the new quintet is considered by many to have been Davis's strongest working group. Wayne Shorter composed extensively for Davis providing pieces including "Prince of Darkness", "ESP", "Footprints" and "Sanctuary". Simultaneous with his time in the Miles Davis quintet, Wayne Shorter recorded several albums for Blue Note Records, featuring almost exclusively his own compositions. JuJu and Speak No Evil are two of the most well known recordings from this era.
