Saturday Night Live's Alex Foster and Michael Wolff Announce Live Dates

.
Saturday Night Live's Alex Foster and acclaimed pianist Michael Wolff will join together for six sets over two Wednesdays in January (1/12 and 1/19) at Zinc Bar in NYC's West Village.

Wolff and Foster will be joined by Jeff 'Tain' Watts on drums & James Genus on bass for 1/12, and by Victor Jones on drums on 1/19. More guest artists will be announced soon. Both evenings will feature quartets.

In February, Wolff will return to a familiar haunt, his beloved Knickerbocker Bar and Grill, for a month-long weekend residency featuring some of the most storied artists in jazz. For each multi-show weekend gig, Wolff intends to use a different trio line-up: on 2/4 & 2/5, Wolff will be joined by Chip Jackson on bass, and the legendary Mike Clark on drums; On 2/11 & 2/12, Ben Wolfe on bass and Carl Allen on drums; on 2/18 & 2/19, Peter Barshay on bass and Mike Clark on drums; and finally, on 2/25 & 2/26, Uganna Okegwo on bass and Akira Tana on drums.

Wolff has great respect for all these artists…drummer Carl Allen runs the Jazz program at Julliard; Ben Wolfe is a long-time performer with Harry Connick Jr; drummer Mike Clark is a member of the legendary Headhunters, a solo artist in his own right, and a familiar face at Wolff gigs; Peter Barshay and Akira Tana (formerly of Tana/Reid) are known to Wolff from the Bay Area; and Uganna Okegwo and Chip Jackson are long-time Wolff band members.
