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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
