ABOUT WARREN WOLF...

 

Baltimore's Warren Wolf is an acclaimed jazz vibraphonist known for his sophisticated post-bop style. Born in Baltimore in 1979, Wolf first began playing music at age three, studying vibraphone, marimba, drums, and piano with his father, a teacher and amateur musician. Focusing on classical music in his youth, Wolf attended the Peabody Preparatory School, during which time he also took lessons with former Baltimore Symphony Orchestra member Leo LePage.

It wasn't until his teens, while attending the Baltimore School for the Arts, that Wolf became increasingly interested in jazz. After high school, he earned his undergraduate music degree at Berklee College of Music in Boston, studying privately with vibraphonist Dave Samuels. Also during his time at Berklee, Wolf befriended trumpeter, classmate, and future collaborator Jeremy Pelt. Pelt introduced the vibraphonist to other fellow Berklee notables, including Kendrick Scott, Walter Smith III, and trumpeter Jason Palmer, with whom Wolf would co-lead a band at local club Wally's for most of his time in Boston.

 

After graduating in 2001, Wolf continued to gig around Boston, while also working as a percussion instructor at Berklee. In 2005 he returned to Baltimore, where he quickly established himself as an in-demand performer and bandleader. As a sideman, Wolf has performed and/or recorded with such luminaries as Bobby Watson, Christian McBride, Wynton Marsalis, Christian Scott, Robert Glasper, Esperanza Spalding, and others.

 

As a solo artist, Wolf made his debut in 2005 with the independently produced effort Incredible Jazz Vibes. He then signed with Mack Avenue Records and released his sophomore album, 2011's Warren Wolf. Two years later he returned with the quartet album Wolfgang, featuring appearances from pianist Benny Green, bassist McBride, and others. In 2016 Wolf released Convergence, featuring McBride, drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts, and pianist Brad Mehldau, as well as a guest appearance by guitarist John Scofield

The Jazzway Holiday Show with Sharon Clark and her trio

 

Details and tickets will be posted soon!

 

 

"Ms. Clarks sound evokes not [Billie] Holiday but Drather a less operatic Sarah Vaughan fused with the more animated side of Shirley Horn, a singer who also liked to take her time. Ms. Clarks voice is rich, her phrasing unfussy, her jazz embellishments minimal. -- Stephen Holden, New York Times

 

 

 

Like [Sarah Vaughan], her natural sound is almost operatic in its richness, but pure jazz in its improvisational sassiness. But when she brings her remarkable instrument to bear on those pop hits of the post-nuclear age, which she clearly loves, she creates something new and amazing. . . .

 

All of which begs an additional question: Why has Sharn Clark been so overlooked, particularly in New York, for all this time? That is surely going to change." Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal

 

"A revelation . . . I never thought I'd hear a singer with the range, musicality and command of tone and timbre that was Sarah at her best, but now I have." JazzTimes

 

Biography

 Washington, D.C. standout Sharón Clark has brought festival and concert audiences to their feet across the U.S. and Europe. Her New York run drew raves from the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal, and she won New York’s Bistro Award for Best Vocalist.

 

Ms. Clark has made multiple international tours in recent years, making her debut in Israel and returning to Russia, where she has developed a major following. Her most recent release, “Do it Again — My Tribute to Shirley Horn,” is on its third printing, and she grabs top honors wherever she goes.

 

Ms. Clark won the Gold Medal and $10,000 top prize at the Savannah Music Festival's American Traditions Competition. She then took first place in the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition, which offers a $2,500 prize along with a featured appearance with the Baltimore Symphony.

 

Ms. Clark appears regularly in DC at Blues Alley and Loews Madison Hotel. A featured soloist with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, the Richmond Symphony, and the Baltimore Symphony, Clark has headlined the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, the Cape May Jazz Festival and the Savannah Music Festival. Both the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and The Ludacris Foundation chose Ms. Clark to perform for their separate tributes to Quincy Jones.

Please donate to Jazzway 6004

Our concerts have high overhead costs.  We incur the same amount in music licensing fees and insurance that larger commercial venues incur, but we wish to sustain a high payout to musicians along with hospitality amenities they often don't get elsewhere.  Because of these high standards, almost all of our concerts operate at a loss. And there are few operating costs grants available for venues our size. 

In order to continue to bring you these wonderful concerts without lowering the benefits to the musicians, please consider making a tax deductible donation to Jazzway.  Any donation, large or small will be much appreciated and will help us to retain our high standards. 

Thanks! Howard & Marianne
