Founded in 2001, the Warriors are 13 of the most creative musicians in modern jazz. Led by Philly-based saxophonist, Bobby Zankel, the Warriors of the Wonderful Sound have been called “a unique amalgam of the rhythm and intricacy of bebop, with the soul and drive of hard-bop,and the spirituality, creativity and intensity of the avant garde.” These performance are presented in partnership with Ars Nova.

Due to a family emergency, Oliver Lake will not be performing. The great Don Byron will be joining the Warriors as the special guest for the evening.
