Following ‘Miraculous' Recovery from Aggressive Cancer, Acclaimed Jazz Pianist Michael Wolff Sets Tour Dates in Cleveland, Long Beach LI and New York City

New Album Planned for 2020

Acclaimed jazz pianist Michael Wolff has confirmed new tour dates for the months ahead, with multiple shows in Cleveland, Long Beach LI and New York City. The upcoming concerts mark a fresh start for Wolff, following his recent recovery from aggressive cancer. He comments, "I'm so happy to be back playing and recording and feeling well again. It's been a monstrous journey, which I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.  But the outcome is miraculous."

JazzTimes Magazine chronicled Wolff's ordeal in March -

DownBeat Magazine's March article is here-
Michael Wolff's Miraculous Turn:

Wolff previews his upcoming 2020 album, which also features Ben Allison and Allan Mednard: "As far as the new album, it is mostly original compositions by me, a couple by Ben Allison, and two covers: ‘Omar Sharif' by David Yazbek, from THE BAND'S VISIT musical, and the standard, ‘You and The Night and The Music'.

The vibe is concentrating on beauty. We worked on playing with energy but made sure to have a lot of feel and grooves in the music. A lot of Brazilian and Latin-influenced grooves along with some straight ahead, and a new ballad of mine. Allan Mednard on drums is a one of a kind drummer -- so sensitive and grooving at the same time. He makes up his own beats to everything. And Ben Allison is a master on the bass, original, melodic and in the pocket. It's really a listenable album. I thought about what I'd like to listen to at home, and tried to make that album.

As far as Swirl, I'm so thrilled to have had an album get to #1 at jazz radio. It only took me 66 years!!!!!! The response has been so good, and our performances' attendance has been a marker of the album's acceptance by our audience. I'm so happy to have it out on Sunnyside Records. They did a great job with all aspects of putting out the album."
