Drummer Ali Jackson and vibraphonist Warren Wolf – each born into a musical family – absorbed jazz from their childhoods. Jackson occupies the hot seat with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and his own Yes! Trio; multi-instrumentalist Wolf studied with John Locke and became an in-demand sideman and leader. They each bring small groups to the House of Swing for a contemporary percussive double bill.
