Wolff Takes New York By Storm in January and February, with High-Profile/Eclectic Band Line-Ups, Ten Nights of Shows

The great saxophonist James Moody Comments: “I love playing with Michael Wolff. He's a monster musician; so talented!"

On the heels of two sold-out concerts at Snug Harbor in New Orleans, acclaimed jazz pianist Michael Wolff is set to take New York by storm in January and February, with ten nights of shows and multiple performances featuring high profile, eclectic band line-ups.

On January 12th and 19th, Wolff and renowned saxophonist Alex Foster will headline ZINC BAR in the West Village for six sets over two Wednesday nights. Wolff and Foster (widely recognized as the alto saxophonist in the Saturday Night Live band for the past two decades,) will be joined by Jeff 'Tain' Watts on drums for 1/12, and by Victor Jones on drums on 1/19. More guest artists will be announced soon.

82 West 3rd Street
January 12th, January 19th
3 sets each night, beginning at 9:30pm
Tickets $10 at the bar

In February, Wolff will return to a familiar haunt, his beloved KNICKERBOCKER BAR and GRILL, for a month-long weekend residency featuring some of the most storied artists in jazz. For each multi-show weekend gig, Wolff intends to use a different trio line-up: on 2/4 & 2/5, Wolff will be joined by Chip Jackson on bass, and the legendary Mike Clark on drums; On 2/11 & 2/12, Ben Wolfe on bass and Carl Allen on drums; on 2/18 & 2/19, Peter Barshay on bass and Mike Clark on drums; and finally, on 2/25 & 2/26, Uganna Okegwo on bass and Akira Tana on drums.

Wolff has great respect for all these artists...drummer Carl Allen runs the Jazz program at Julliard; Ben Wolfe is a long-time performer with Harry Connick Jr; drummer Mike Clark is a member of the legendary Headhunters, a solo artist in his own right, and a familiar face at Wolff gigs; Peter Barshay and Akira Tana (formerly of Tana/Reid) are known to Wolff from the Bay Area; and Uganna Okegwo and Chip Jackson are long-time Wolff band members.

MICHAEL WOLFF—Month-Long Weekend Residency
Multiple Trio Line-Ups
