Acclaimed by some of the jazz world’s most respected critics for his “wit and cool intelligence” and signature “innovative, melding of hard-swinging jazz quartet, outstanding guest soloists and classical string quartet.”, New York bassist/composer and bandleader Ben Wolfe continues to produce works that draw top-flight reviews from fans and jazz journalists alike.

Ben’s 2023 release Unjust, is his tenth as a leader and features all original compositions. As stated in the liner notes “This project was a gathering of musicians I believed would find common ground with each other and would also find some magic within the ensemble. I very much enjoyed the process and I’m extremely proud to present Unjust.”

"Unjust is a brilliant work of melodic ensemble writing and superb playing by a stellar intergenerational crew." -- Bill Milkowski, Downbeat
"Its balance—of elegance and propulsion, of accessibility and edge—distinguishes it from most conventional jazz. Its details reward repeated listening." -- Larry Blumenfeld, Wall Street Journal
