Acclaimed jazz pianist Michael Wolff's appearance at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. is confirmed for broadcast on NPR Jazzset on April 1st. The performance will air on 119 NPR stations nationwide, and via jazzset.npr.org. Airdates on WBGO in New York will be Sunday, April 4th at 6pm and Wednesday, April 7th at 6:30pm.
Wolff recently wrapped up a successful multi-weekend stand at his beloved Knickerbocker club in lower Manhattan (and plans a return for April 23rd and 24th.) Wolff has a great affinity for the room, which he described as the only venerable restaurant/jazz joint left in NYC." His recollections were featured in a JazzTimes.com essay, reprinted below.
In May, Michael Wolff heads to the West Coast for a pair of shows. His live shows have become known for their unpredictability, humor and high-octane punch. In fact, in a live review of a Wolff concert this summer, The San Jose Mercury News raved, all of the music felt very full and passionately alive."
