Ben Wolfe’s recording, From Here I See, is a continuation of his belief in the primacy of melody over all other aspects of music. The recording features all original compositions presented in a standard jazz quartet format. Most of the compositions are ballads combining the quartet with a string quartet. A number of compositions also feature special guests.
New York bassist/composer and bandleader Ben Wolfe’s music has been described as “Mingus and Miles Davis meet Bartok and Bernard Herrmann” (Ben Ratliff – The New York Times). Acclaimed by some of the jazz world’s most respected critics for his “wit and cool intelligence” and signature “innovative, melding of hard-swinging jazz quartet, outstanding guest soloists and classical string quartet.”, Wolfe continues to produce works that draw top-flight reviews from fans and jazz journalists alike.
