A rare appearance by Baltimore native Nico Sarbanes with renowned Jazz bassist Ben Wolfe
Wynton Marsalis said, “Ben Wolfe swings with authority.” Including his recent Posi-­Tone Records release, “The Whisperer,” bassist-­?composer Ben Wolfe has released eight CDs comprised solely of his original music. Chamber Music America awarded him the 2004 New Works: Creation and Presentation Program Grant, funded through the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. As a result of this award, Wolfe was able to compose his extended composition Contradiction: Music for Sextet.
Born in Baltimore and raised in Portland, Wolfe has gained a large following from his performances with Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., and Diana Krall. Early in his career, he formed a duo with Harry Connick Jr. and went on to record over a dozen albums and soundtracks.He then joined the Wynton Marsalis Septet and remained until it disbanded. Wolfe also became an integral part of Diana Krall’s touring band and played on many of her recordings, including the Grammy Award winning CD, “When I Look In Your Eyes.” As a member of The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO), Wolfe performed with Joe Henderson, Doc Cheatham, Jon Hendricks, Harry “Sweets” Edison, and Billy Higgins, among others. He has also recorded with Branford Marsalis, Orrin Evans, James Moody, Eric Reed and Benny Green. Ben is currently on the teaching faculty at The Julliard School: Jazz Division.
