Michael Wolff Trio
with special guest Steve Wilson
Made famous by his exposure as musical director on "The Arsenio Hall Show" and currently appearing in Nickelodeon's The Naked Brothers Band along with his sons, pianist Michael Wolff has since been busy creating some of the most exciting avant-garde jazz combos in the United States. You must hear this artist, "full of quiet wisdom as well as expressive passion" (DownBeat). Firmly rooted in the jazz and blues tradition, Wolff's music cleanly and coolly fuses everything from alt rock to soul to funk to Eastern Indian rhythms. His improvisations create an undeniable organic groove. Wolff brings his trio--bassist Chip Jackson and drummer Victor Jones--and special guest saxophonist Steve Wilson, "a riveting improviser" (The Village Voice) who was last seen at the Center in May 2009 with the Maria Schneider Orchestra.
