I’m excited to be part of a team that has started a new jazz series here in my hometown of Kalamazoo, MI. Our plan is to bring in some word-class jazz artists to perform in an intimate “jazz club style” venue.
First up in our series is the amazing saxophonist Steve Wilson.
March 31st @ 7:30pm
315 W Michigan Ave, Kalamazoo, MI
Steve Wilson – sax
Matthew Fries – piano
John Hébert – bass
Keith Hall – drums
Steve has one of the most recognizable and beautiful sounds on saxophone, and plays with so much soulful authority. He has brought his distinctive sound to more than 100 recordings led by such celebrated and wide-ranging artists as Chick Corea, George Duke, Michael Brecker, Dave Holland, Dianne Reeves, Bill Bruford, Gerald Wilson, Maria Schneider, Joe Henderson, Charlie Byrd, Billy Childs, Karrin Allyson, Don Byron, Bill Stewart, James Williams, and Mulgrew Miller among many others.
He is one of my absolute favorites on the instrument. Over the years I’ve had the incredible opportunity to play with Steve a number of times, and selfishly I can’t wait to do it again! If you’re in the area I hope you’ll join us for what I’m sure will be a beautiful concert. If you can’t join us in person please help us spread the word.
