Steve Wilson
With Four Sold-Out Shows at Kennedy Center Jazz Club, NPR Coverage, and Rave Previews & Reviews, Steve Wilson Continues to Build a Remarkable Career

New CD Planned for 2012

Acclaimed jazz saxophonist Steve Wilson recently opened the 2011/2012 season at Kennedy Center Jazz Club with four sold-out sets, live coverage by NPR, rave previews & reviews and more. Wilson continues to sculpt an impressive career as a headliner, sideman, educator and jazz historian, and remains one of the most well-liked, in-demand and respected figures in jazz.

Standing ovations greeted Wilson's sets at the Kennedy Center, and shows were recorded for broadcast next year on NPR's JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater, adding to Wilson's extensive NPR presence, as outlined below. While in Washington D.C., Wilson showed his ongoing dedication as an educator and mentor, with a workshop at the Ellington School and a sold-out clinic for middle school students at the KC Jazz Club with his quartet, discussing the evolution of jazz from swing to be-bop, and Charlie Parker's influence in that movement.
