BEN WENDEL - THE SEASONS PROJECT: AUGUST W/MARK TURNER + NPR + CONCERTS + ACT II
(Published: August 31, 2015)


Dear Friends, Colleagues, Journalists, DJs & PDs,
BEN WENDEL is incredibly happy to announce the next installment of his video art project, THE SEASONS. Previous guests on The Seasons include Julian Lage, Shai Maestro, Matt Brewer, Joshua Redman and others. This month features a duet with the great saxophonist and composer, MARK TURNER, "someone who has greatly influenced me and countless other musicians", commented Wendel. For those that know Mark's playing, this duet ended up being directly influenced by his intervallic language on the horn. Click on the link below to see the video:

NEW RECORDING COMING TO YOU SOON!:

ACT - Featuring Ben Wendel, Harish Raghavan & Nate Wood - Proudly Announces the Release of Their Second Recording,
ACT II
Available on September 18, 2015


"This three-piece band pursues a style both hypnotic and rough-and-tumble, drawing freely from the saxophone-trio playbook but guarding its independence."
- Nate Chinen, The New York Times

"It only takes a few minutes of this debut to clarify just how rousing the group can be . . . the kind of propulsion hat a sax trio needs to grab a listener's lapels."
- Jim Macnie, DownBeat Magazine

"The collaborative venture of multi-instrumentalist Ben Wendel and bassist Harish Raghavan, plays lean, high-wire postbop" - Time Out NY

"The trio is having fun, enjoy being with each other, digging into the songs . . . creative music that demands you pay attention but pays the attentive listener back by being honest. Can't ask for more than that."
- Richard Kamins, The Hartford Courant, Step Tempest, AllAboutJazz

The sophomore recording from ACT, ACT II, aligns the orbits of three of the most creative forces in our vast galaxy of music, Ben Wendel (tenor saxophone, melodica, bassoon), Harish Raghavan (bass), and Nate Wood (drums). These musicians are supremely talented, that is a given. What is fascinating and gripping is the level of their creativity, and their ability to fully express their individuality while complimenting each other. Their new recording ACT II, fulfills one's need to hear imaginative, adventurous music, and also stands as a shining example of what it means to play selflessly in a trio setting (albeit one with a distinct instrumentation); they are that in tune and sympathetic to one another, and together they conjure up another winner with this recording.
