Immanuel Wilkins
saxophone, alto


Alto saxophonist and composer, Immanuel Wilkins is one of the vital voices of jazz in the 21st century. The Philadelphia native and his longstanding quartet perform music from his sophomore Blue Note recording The 7th Hand.

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. Listeners were introduced to this riveting sound with his acclaimed debut album Omega, which was named the #1 Jazz Album of 2020 by The New York Times. The album also introduced his remarkable quartet with Micah Thomas on piano, Daryl Johns on bass, and Kweku Sumbry on drums, a tight-knit unit that Wilkins features once again on his stunning sophomore album The 7th Hand.
