The music of saxophonist and composer Immanuel Wilkins is filled with empathy and conviction, bonding arcs of melody and lamentation to pluming gestures of space and breath.
The 7th Hand, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed Omega, was included among the 10 Best Jazz albums of 2022 by The New York Times.
In 2023 Wilkins was ranked #1 in the Downbeat Critics Poll in a whopping 3 categories: 1) Alto Saxophonist; 2) Rising Star Composer; and 3) Rising Star Group.
“Anyone trying to tune into the present moment in jazz could do a lot worse than starting with Immanuel Wilkins, an alto saxophonist whose playing is at once dazzlingly solid and perfectly lithe.”
–New York Times
“Omega is the most important debut jazz recording in years.”
