Composer Wayne Shorter is fascinated by the metaphorical idea of terra incognita, the undiscovered territory in ourselves... and the courage that it takes to explore that territory. On Today's show, hear Imani Winds play Shorter's Terra Incognita at a concert presented by the University of Chicago.
