Ben Wendel, saxophonist of Kneebody and forerunner of the current jazz generation, presents music from his YouTube project Seasons, a remarkable video series on YouTube: 12 duets, composed for and dedicated to 12 musicians he admires, released over 12 months. The project was inspired by the eponymous series of piano duos by Tchaikovsky.

Ben Wendel is a versatile musician, who effortlessly switches between tenor sax and bassoon and between jazz, classical music, funk or West Coast hip-hop. Born in Vancouver and raised in Los Angeles he is currently living in Brooklyn, New York.

Personnel: Ben Wendel: tenor saxophone; Gilad Hekselman: guitar; Sullivan Fortner: piano; Joe Martin: bass; Kendrick Scott: drums.
