It’s clear from the first note that 24-year-old alto saxophonist and composer Immanuel Wilkins is one of the vital voices of jazz in the 21st century. The 2021 LetterOne RISING STARS Jazz Award winner brings his longstanding quartet to the Joe Henderson Lab for their San Francisco debut, performing music from his upcoming sophomore Blue Note recording The 7th Hand, to be released in January 2022.
It was through Moran that Wilkins made his SFJAZZ debut in October 2017, performing as part of In My Mind, the pianist’s multi-media recreation of Thelonious Monk’s landmark 1959 Town Hall concert. Since then, Wilkins has worked with a range of artists including Wynton Marsalis, Joel Ross, Solange, and Gerald Clayton.
