This just in: Drummer Matt Wilson (pictured) is bringing his quartet to St. Louis for a concert at 7:00 p.m. this Thursday, April 8 at Hixson Middle School, 630 S. Elm in Webster Groves.
Wilson and his band - saxophonist Jeff Lederer, trumpeter Kirk Knuffke and bassist Chris Lightcap - will be joined onstage by the Webster Groves High School "Jazz 1" ensemble. Wilson played in St. Louis most recently in March 2009 at the Black Cat Theatre. His last Quartet CD, That’s Gonna Leave a Mark, also came out in 2009.
The Matt Wilson Quartet performance at Hixson Middle School is open to the public, and general admission tickets will be on sale at the door for $10.
