Wayne Shorter Quartet: Even in an art form where it’s not unusual for octogenarians to thrive creatively, saxophonist/composer Wayne Shorter is in the midst of an unprecedented late-career renaissance. Inspired by his superlative quartet with pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade, the 80-year-old Shorter continues expanding music’s possibilities into the outer reaches. 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 4 p.m. Sunday. $35-$85. SFJazz Center, 201 Franklin St., S.F. (866) 920-5299. www.sfjazz.org.
