Steve Wilson and Wilsonian's Grain

Shows at 7:30pm and 9:30pm nightly

Any performance by the great Steve Wilson offers “selflessness, a fresh and well–made take on the tradition, and the ability to reference a broad spectrum of strategies and styles without falling prey to pastiche or sacrificing an original voice.” (Detroit Free Press) The saxophonist, composer and bandleader has been a regular and welcome presence on our stage for years, including his gala 50th birthday celebration in February 2011. This appearance will feature him at the helm of a nonpareil quartet including pianist Orrin Evans, bassist Ugonna Okegwo, and drummer Nate Smith – and they’re guaranteed to rock the house! Steve Wilson, wrote Ben Ratliff in The New York Times, is “among the best New York jazz has to offer.”
