UNH Traditional Jazz Series: Immanuel Wilkins Quartet
Friday, April 07, 2023 - 8:00pm to 9:30pm
Paul Creative Arts Center Johnson Theatre
The music of saxophonist and composer Immanuel Wilkins is filled with empathy and conviction, bonding arcs of melody and lamentation to pluming gestures of space and breath. His remarkable quartet features Micah Thomas on piano, Daryl Johns on bass, and Kweku Sumbry on drums. His new album, The 7th Hand, explores relationships between presence and nothingness across an hour-long suite comprised of seven movements. Wilkins and his bandmates reveal their collective truth by peeling themselves back, layer by layer, movement by movement throughout the record.
