Jazz: Immanuel Wilkins Quartet at Groton Hill

February 4 @ 8:00 pm

Immanuel Wilkins Quartet

Alto saxophonist and composer Immanuel Wilkins and the Immanuel Wilkins Quartet bring arcs of melody and a riveting sound to Groton Hill on Feb. 4. “His sound is most often silky and lush… with a gorgeous tone and phrasing, but he can shift into a grittier gospel gear or an airier whisper as the art requires,” notes PopMatters.com. Wilkins’ “impulse is to bring 21st-century creative music forward and reclaim the beating heart of its past without sounding retrospective.”

Wilkins’ debut album Omega was named the #1 Jazz Album of 2020 by The New York Times and MOJO calls the Quartet “contemporary jazz at its most thrilling.”

Wilkins has worked with a diverse range of artists including Solange Knowles, Gretchen Parlato, Wynton Marsalis, Gerald Clayton, Aaron Parks, and Joel Ross, making a striking appearance on the vibraphonist’s 2019 Blue Note debut KingMaker.
