Darrell Grant

April 8

DARRELL GRANT

is a creative artist who harnesses the power of music to create change.  Whether through performing, composing, teaching, or organizing musical initiatives around community, sustainability or social justice, he seeks to leverage a deeper level of engagement and connection.

“I didn’t know jazz piano could be this good; the gorgeous harmonies, subtle nuances, uplifting swing, brilliantly re-composed standard themes, and the range and depth of feelings were a revelation.”

— THE EVENING POST, (WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND)

Rooted in the cultural diversity of the 1920’s Harlem Renaissance, for more than 40 years the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) served as the embodiment of classic jazz cool. With all the savoir faire of a martini—shaken not stirred—the MJQ deftly melded Bach fugues, American song, mid-century modernism, and the blues into a sound unlike any other. Following the lead of these masters, MJ New’s blend of classical and jazz pays homage to the legendary MJQ and imagines a distinctly new sound.

COVER CHARGES apply when Wilfs features live music in our bar area – Wednesday – Saturday, 7:30-11:30 pm. Quite simply, the cover charge is paid directly to the artists that you are enjoying each night at Wilfs. When you join us for drinks or dinner and plan on leaving before the music starts, we won’t ask for a cover charge. That does not mean you can come early and avoid paying the cover – we want to make sure our musicians are paid for their performance. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask your host or server.
