Original show description below.

SFJAZZ Collective members Warren Wolf and Edward Simon team up for a very special vibraphone/piano duo performance in the Joe Henderson Lab. As bandmates in the Collective for nearly a decade Wolf and Simon have explored the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Sly and the Family Stone, Joe Henderson, Michael Jackson, and Miles Davis in both acoustic and electric incarnations.

On the bandstand they’re almost always surrounded by their illustrious Collective compatriots, but on rare occasions they’ve had a chance to break away as a duo (like on Wolf’s ravishing arrangement of the bossa nova standard “Chega de Saudade”). Left to their own devices for an evening of duets, the prolific composers are covering the waterfront, playing original tunes, American Songbook gems and jazz standards. Eager to see where the music takes them, Simon and Wolf thrive in stripped down settings where hushed dynamics are possible and every note counts. With Wolf’s R&B-infused Mack Avenue album Reincarnation, released at the start of the pandemic, and Simon’s epic Ridgeway Records anthology 25 Yearscelebrating a quarter century of recording as a leader, this is a partnership that draws on a vast and varied body of influences.
