About this clip:
Saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins and his quartet perform Wilkins’ composition “Fugitive Ritual, Selah” from his 2022 album “The 7th Hand” during his concert on September 22, 2022 as part of the 2022-23 Season, broadcast on Fridays Live.
About the concert:
25-year-old alto saxophonist and composer Immanuel Wilkins has become one of the vital voices of jazz, bringing music from his sophomore Blue Note recording “The 7th Hand.”
The Pennsylvania native’s studies at the Juilliard School led to his connection to mentors who helped establish his professional career — Oakland-born trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire and pianist Jason Moran. Since then, Wilkins has worked with a range of artists including Wynton Marsalis, Joel Ross, Solange, and Gerald Clayton. His Blue Note debut, “Omega”, took the #1 spot on The New York Times’ list of Best Jazz Albums of 2020.
