Chip Stephens / Glenn Wilson Duo

Ohio Natives! Dynamic Pianist Chip Stephens &  Baritone Saxophonist Glenn Wilson Play Duo Live at Nighttown! Chip Stephens & Glenn Wilson are both professors of Music at the University of Illinois Champaign/Urbana.

Playing Music from their new CD on Capri Records "Sadness and Soul".

With their Capri release Sadness and Soul (available October 18, 2019), Chip Stephens and Glenn Wilson present a stunning recording of piano/baritone saxophone duets featuring some treasured jazz standards and two original compositions reharmonized and performed with the freedom of expression that can only come from two jazz masters immersed deeply in their craft.

Stephens and Wilson have played together for over 18 years and the duo is two years old.  With advanced and interesting reharmonizations and without the bass and drums to hold down the rhythm, they take off on flights of rhythmic, harmonic and melodic fancy at a moment’s notice.

Sought after for his outstanding collaborative abilities, Chip Stephens can be heard on nearly 70 recordings as a sideman and band leader. A powerful jazz pianist, hard swinging, lyrical and clear, Stephens has performed on four continents with some of the most prestigious names in jazz.  In addition to performing on Grammy and Emmy winning recordings with trumpet legend Arturo Sandoval.

Glenn Wilson has been a professional jazz saxophonist for nearly 50 years. After completing his undergraduate degree from Youngstown State University in 1977, Wilson moved to New York City, where he worked and recorded with The Buddy Rich Band, Lionel Hampton Orchestra, Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra, Tito Puente, Machito, Bill Kirchner Nonet, Bob Belden Ensemble, and scores of other jazz and Latin-jazz groups. Glenn recorded his first CD as a leader, the highly-reviewed Impasse, in 1984 for Cadence Records. In 1988, Glenn began his association with Sunnyside Records with the release of Elusive. Glenn has earned a place in the Baritone Saxophone category of the DownBeat Magazine Jazz Critics Poll.
