San Francisco, CA, USA
Patrick Wolff is a saxophone and clarinet player rooted in the bebop tradition, with a long history in the New York City jazz scene. He has worked with Matt Wilson, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Peter Bernstein, Grant Stewart, Josh Roseman, Dena DeRose, and many other jazz greats. Since moving to San Francisco in 2009, Wolff has appeared regularly with Marcus Shelby, Adam Shulman, and Diana Gameros.
With four albums released under his name, he is making his mark as a bandleader with a sextet playing his original compositions, and with a classic jazz quartet focused on obscure and forgotten repertoire. He teaches at the Stanford Jazz Workshop and College of San Mateo, and hosts a weekly show on KCSM 91.1 FM ("Have You Heard") exploring the work of emerging and underrated jazz artists.
