Ben Wendel is a new jazz talent who is expected to have a long and fruitful career. His work has been widely praised in the USA for his ability to perform in various genres: in classic with Ken Nagano, in jazz with the Grammy-nominated group Kneebody, as well as funk and hip-hop with Prince and Snoop Dogg. His current album is called “What We Bring” and combines a yearning saxophone sound with progressive rhythms. His performance at Porgy is guaranteed to be both intensely musical and very entertaining.
