Kalil Wilson & Friends
KALIL WILSON & FRIENDS will interpret some of the most romantic and swinging music from the classic age of jazz, plus some amazing original tunes from Kalil's latest album.
"Possessing a lithe and soulful sound, he swung effortlessly with a true sense of surprise. His fine-grained tenor and graceful presence reveal him to be one of the finest male jazz vocalists on the scene." -- ANDY GILBERT, San Francisco Chronicle

"Kalil is great! A real pleasure to hear. -- HERBIE HANCOCK

"A very special young talent with a unique sound that crosses through genres." -- KENNY BURRELL
An amazing and soulful sound." -- WAYNE SHORTER

VOCALIST KALIL WILSON is gifted with a powerful yet nuanced voice and armed with a technical versatility that has earned high marks from the music press and loyal fans on three continents. An Oakland native, Kalils early life was filled with music--he is the son of well-known Nigerian bassist/bandleader Babá Ken Okulolo. After early training with the Oakland Youth Chorus and the UC Berkeley Young Musicians Program, he joined the UCLA Voice Department, and completed an honors degree.
Encouraged by the legendary  Kenny Burrell, he recorded his first album, Easy To Love, showcasing his bright re-imaginings of jazz standards. On his latest album, Time Stops, he presents a set of arresting, original tunes, interpreted with his amazing, velvety voice.
Touring throughout the U.S., Europe, and Russia (reaching as far as Siberia!), Wilson has captivated audiences and music critics alike, and has shared stages with luminaries such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Carlos Santana, Esperanza Spaulding, Maestro Michael Morgan, and Omara Portuondo.  

PIANIST GRANT LEVIN is a highly regarded pianist who has played with many renowned musicians, graced the finest jazz venues in the Bay Area, and appeared in countless recordings. He holds a BA in music from the University of Nevada, and a faculty appointment in the music department of California State University, Chico.

BASSIST AIDAN MCCARTHY is a Bay Area native, currently in high demand on the jazz circuit having just been a finalist in Jazz Search West.

DRUMMER GENIUS WESLEY has been hailed as an amazing, prodigy jazz drummer and percussionist. Still a youth, he performs regularly with the Oaktown Jazz Workshop, the Young Musicians Choral Orchestra, The Dynamic Miss Faye Carole, Kalil Wilson, Morgan Maudière, and many others.
