About Alan Shorter
Alan Shorter (May 29, 1932 - 1987) was a free jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player, and the older brother of composer and saxophone player Wayne Shorter. Alan was born in the Ironbound District in Newark, New Jersey. He started on alto saxophone, but switched to trumpet after graduating from high school. He attended Howard University but soon rebelled again the ultra-conservative atmosphere and dropped out (he later attended and graduated from New York University (NYU))
