Michael Wolff’s New Album: Zenith

Michael Wolff’s first solo album, Zenith, has officially been released into the world. The album includes a mixture of original compositions, as well as songs written by Sufjan Stevens, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and more. You can check out the full track listing below.

Here’s the response from Gary Walker of WBGO, the premier Jazz radio station for the New York City area:

“Michael has captured the diverse spirit of a solo performance done well: from the opening New Orleans bounce; to Makin’ Whoopee the way we all hope to; the choice of Sufjan Stevens; the rollicking sun/fun of St. Thomas; the floating dischord of Cry Me a River; he’s not stayed Too Long at the Fair. The lights are bright, the creativity, phrasing and turn on a dime feelings, taking us along. I enjoyed every ride. Zenith – a perfect title for this outstanding expression. Those 20 questions sessions with oneself can be damning. Sure sounds like Michael has the answers.”
