On October 24, 2009, during celebrations of the 40th anniversary of NEC's jazz studies program, the Wayne Shorter Quartet took to the stage of NEC's Jordan Hall, joining forces with the NEC Philharmonia, conducted by Stanford and Norma Jean Calderwood Director of Orchestras Hugh Wolff. This video captures their performance of Prometheus Unbound, a reinterpretation of the track Capricorn II from Shorter's 2003 Verve album Alegría.

During this visit, members of Shorter's quartet also gave a masterclass with NEC's Preparatory and Continuing Education jazz students.
