Join Jazz Host George Thomas Friday July 30 at 10pm for a jazz duet performance from VPR studios with Steve Wilson on alto sax and Joe Locke on vibraphone.

Steve Wilson plays flute and soprano saxophone in addition to alto sax
and has been hailed by NPR as "One of the Finest Saxophonists in the Business." A musician's musician, Wilson has brought his distinctive sound to more than 100 recordings led by such celebrated and wide-ranging artists as Chick Corea, George Duke, Michael Brecker, Dave Holland, Dianne Reeves, Bill Bruford, Gerald Wilson, Maria Schneider, Joe Henderson, Charlie Byrd, Billy Childs, Karrin Allyson, Don Byron, Bill Stewart, James Williams, and Mulgrew Miller among many others.

The critical community continually cites Joe Locke for his artistic work.
"There seems little doubt that Locke, with his ability to play cool and funky, heady and relaxed, is set to become the pre-eminent vibraphonist in jazz." (The Times, London). He has been voted the #1 vibist in DownBeat Magazine's Critic's Poll (TDWR) and Brazil's International Jazz Poll, has recorded over 25 CDs as a band leader, and as producer and a sideman he appears on almost 100 recordings.
