[…] Saxophonist Ben Wendel has a new album, The Seasons, that features guitarist Gilad Hekselman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Brewer, and drummer Eric Harland. Back in 2015, Wendel wrote 12 chamber pieces and recorded them as duos with musicians he admired, releasing one a month on YouTube. Now, he’s taken that music and reworked it with this band, all of whom were originally duo partners. We’ve got a premiere of the video for ‘July,’ which was shot at the Irondale in Brooklyn on September 7. Check it out below; The Seasons will be out October 12 on Motéma. You can also visit to see and hear the original 12 duos.
