Dizzy's Club

Ben Wolfe Quintet featuring Randy Brecker and Warren Wolf

With bassist Ben Wolfe, vibraphonist Warren Wolf, pianist Luis Perdomo, drummer Donald Edwards, trumpeter Randy Brecker (8/1-8/3), and alto saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins (8/4 only).

Ben Wolfe is a bassist and composer who “swings with authority,” according to Wynton Marsalis. Not only has he held long-term positions with artists including Harry Connick Jr., Diana Krall, and Marsalis, but Wolfe is also a prominent bandleader and recording artist who has long been praised for his eclectic output. Wolfe’s annual return to Dizzy’s Club is always an anticipated occasion, and his shows this year will be extra special, serving as a combined birthday and album release celebration. From August 1–4, Wolfe will give audiences exclusive access to his upcoming album, Fatherhood, set for release on August 30. He’ll perform new pieces featured on the record, and fans can purchase the album almost a full month before it’s released to the public! Fatherhood pays tribute to Wolfe’s late father, with whom Wolfe formed his deepest bonds through music, as is a meditation on what it means for Ben to himself be a father.

Special guests include trumpet icon Randy Brecker (8/1-8/3), a six-time Grammy Award winner as a bandleader, and Warren Wolf, one of the leading voices on the vibraphone and protégé of the all-time great Bobby Hutcherson. The entire lineup is outstanding, and anyone interested in contemporary jazz should make sure to catch at least one of these sets.
