“The ensemble swoops and glides through Wolff’s intricate charts, generating tremendous excitement as serpentine lines diverge and converge to create sumptuous harmonies.”  — Andrew Gilbert

Saxophonist and composer Patrick Wolff is a multi-dimensional musician with wide-ranging influences. His credits include such names as Matt Wilson, Peter Bernstein, Tootie Heath, Josh Roseman, Shane Endsley and others. But he’s also spent time reaching far beyond the jazz world with Afrobeat juggernaut Asiko; Nigerian reggae star Majek Fashek; indie rock group Calexico; and punk comic troupe The Loose Nuts. Unencumbered by the bounds of any one genre, Wolff draws from the sounds of Duke Ellington, Ornette Coleman, Abdullah Ibrahim and Andrew Hill to support the atmosphere and narrative of his compositions. With his current sextet and recent albums Noose of Light and Your Obedient Ghost, Wolff fuses the melodies and passion of tango and flamenco with the rhythmic vitality of free jazz. The group features Ben Goldberg, one of the Bay Area’s most celebrated soloists, and rising star vocalist Diana Gameros.
