Thad Wilson Quartet to Play Thad Wilson Quartet, 10/25-26
Thad Wilson Quartet comes to Twins Jazz club on Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26, with 8pm & 10pm sets.
Thad Wilson is known for leading the "most adventurous bands around," according to The Washington Post. He has been a fixture on the vibrant Washington, DC jazz scene. While composing and arranging for over twenty years and playing the trumpet for thirty, Thad's energetic and engaging approach unearths memories of Louis Armstrong. However, his music always reflects a personal style that blends progressive elements such as Blues, Funk, Gospel and a touch of Hip-Hop. Throughout his explorations, he has transcended limitations while still maintaining his unique, unmistakable sound. Thad's eclectic ideas as a modern composer are brought to life through his various projects: The Thad Wilson Quintet, Inner Urge, a collaborative project; Kindred Soul, his electric group; Kako Se, an acoustic duo, Ugetzu, a 10-piece Jazz Orchestra and the Thad Wilson Jazz Orchestra, his 16-piece big band.
