With pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Ben Wolfe, drummer Donald Edwards, vibraphonist Joel Ross, trumpeter Randy Brecker, and tenor saxophonist Ben Solomon
Ben Wolfe is a Grammy Award-winning bassist and composer. Not only has he held long-term positions with artists including Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick Jr., and Diana Krall, Wolfe is also a prominent bandleader and recording artist. Of his MAXJAZZ debut, No Strangers Here, the New York Times wrote: “In this music Mingus and Miles Davis meet Bartok and Bernard Herrmann.” Tonight he leads the Ben Wolfe Sextet featuring jazz giant Randy Brecker. A regular headliner himself, Brecker has won six Grammy Awards as a bandleader and has worked with everyone from Charles Mingus and Horace Silver to Frank Zappa and Parliament-Funkadelic. This will be Wolfe and Brecker’s first collaboration at Dizzy’s, so make sure to catch one of these sets.
