Wayne Shorter


I read about it in the Dutch news.

Haven’t seen it on the sites of CNN, the BBC and The Guardian. Weird!!!

Updated on 4 March:

Shorter was nominated for 23 Grammy Awards and won 12. His first nomination was in 1973. His most recent win was in January 2023, for best improvised jazz solo performance (“Endangered Species”).

However, CNN and The Guardian apparently did not consider his death world news or breaking news. By contrast, Dutch NOS news did and posted it on 2 March 2023. (It was one of the first things I read after I woke up on 3 March.) By this morning, on 4 March 2023, the BBC had put it on the front page of its site too, but it was not there yesterday.

The Guardian included it on the site on 3 March 2023, but you have to search for it in order to find it. Similarly, if you search on the CNN site, you can find the news too: https://edition.cnn.com/2023/03/02/entertainment/wayne-shorter-death/index.html

I usually visit the sites of The Guardian and the BBC about 5 times per day, if not more, and the CNN site 2 or 3, if not more. I visit the NOS site a lot because it often has more global and general news and a more neutral tone than the BBC site and the site of The Guardian.
