Additional Information

Jazz Standard is proud to host the 70th birthday celebration of the great guitarist Jack Wilkins, a major figure on the international jazz scene from his 1973 debut album Windows to his latest MaxJazz release Until It’s Time. The Brooklyn native began playing guitar at age thirteen, and over time developed the flawless technique and imaginative chordal approach that have inspired collaborations with Chet Baker, Sarah Vaughan, Bob Brookmeyer, and Buddy Rich, to name a few. A consummate accompanist, Wilkins has gigged and/or recorded with such renowned singers as Mel Torme, Ray Charles, Morgana King, Tony Bennett, Chris Conner, and Cassandra Wilson. Tonight he’ll welcome to the bandstand a host of musical friends including fellow six–string masters John Abercrombie, Howard Alden, Gene Bertoncini, and Larry Coryell. Jack Wilkins’ 70th birthday is shaping up to be the jazz guitar event of the season – don’t miss it!
