Will Vinson | Back
Alto Sax

Originally from London, saxophonist Will Vinson moved to New York in 1999, and has remained there ever since. He quickly established himself as a player to watch, and has gone on to play with such major figures as Mark Turner, Chris Potter, Gonzalo Rubalcaba and many others. He has released four CD's as leader and composer, as well as appearing on recordings by Ari Hoenig and guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg.

His playing has been praised both by critics (AllAboutJazz called him "a leading force on his instrument"), and by fellow musicians, with Joshua Redman saying "The first time I heard Will Vinson I was totally blown away - so much so that I started trying to play alto again".
