Jazz Standard welcomes back that young giant of the jazz vibraphone, Warren Wolf, and an exceptional quartet featuring acclaimed pianist Helen Sung. This engagement also heralds the release of Warren Wolf’s new album, Past Present Beyond,which celebrates the music of his legendary vibraphone forebears: Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson, Bobby Hutcherson, Gary Burton, Roy Ayers. (Like Hampton, Wolf is a multifaceted musician who doubles as a solid, soulful pianist and a propulsive drummer.) “You can’t hear Warren and not be highly impressed,” says bassist Christian McBride. “Give him some music to learn, he pretty much has it committed to memory in a matter of minutes. In a couple of days, he has it on the piano. Then suddenly, he’s internalizing every part of the music: the melody, the chord changes, the song’s overall personality. You’re listening to him, thinking, ‘Yeah, that’s what I had in mind.’”
