Immanuel Wilkins

“An alto saxophonist whose playing is at once dazzlingly solid and perfectly lithe,” (The New York Times) Immanuel Wilkins has toured the world, playing alongside jazz icons and leaving impressed fans in his wake. At only 22, Wilkins’ sophisticated debut album, Omega, boasts virtuosic musicality and technique with raw reflections on issues that haunt our past and still plague society today. The recording was named the No.1 Jazz Album of 2020 by The New York Times and hailed as “the most important debut jazz recording in years.” (JazzTimes) This Annenberg Center headline debut performance by this Philadelphia-area native is not-to-be-missed, as “the future of jazz is in the hands of musicians like Wilkins.” (AllAboutJazz)
