On Friday, March 20th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to welcome back bassist Ben Wolfe and his quartet as they celebrate the release of their new album "The Whisperer" (Posi-Tone Records). For this performance the group will play selections from their recent album as well as new compositions for this ongoing group.

"Bassist Ben Wolfe spearheads a group committed to a brand of jazz that's straight-ahead but not straightforward" (Nate Chinen, New York Times). Wolfe is "a master technician with an all star band" (Brent Black, Critical Jazz) whose album "The Whisperer" was called a "superb combination of great tunes and great playing" (Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz).

Wolfe was raised in Portland, Oregon. Early on in his career, he formed a duo with pianist Harry Connick Jr. and went on to record over a dozen albums and soundtracks in addition to numerous world tours over the course of five years. He then joined trumpeter Wynton Marsalis's septet for a number of years as well as pianist Diana Krall. He has released dozens of albums as a leader over the years and is currently teaching faculty at The Julliard School in New York City.
