When saxophonist Steve Wilson headed to New York as a young musician, he didn’t know that within 10 years he’d be the subject of a New York Times feature, “A Sideman’s Life.” At current count, he has contributed his distinctive sound and consummate musicianship to well over 100 recordings by leading jazz artists—including at least half a dozen Grammy winners.
He has also released a dozen critically-acclaimed recordings as a leader.
Wilson’s projects include a cutting-edge quartet, two dynamic duos, and an elegant trio. In 2011, he celebrated his 50th birthday with a six-night engagement at NYC’s Jazz Standard, featuring five different all-star bands. We’re thrilled to kick off our season with the Steve Wilson Quartet!
