Bassist for Stevie Wonder and the 5th Dimension. Oboist for the American Ballet Theater orchestra. Jazz saxophonist working with Cannonball Adderley, McCoy Tyner, and Elvin Jones. Leading expert on and transcriber of John Coltrane’s music.

It’s hard to believe, but these accomplishments all belong to the same person, Andrew White III. For over 50 years, White has been enmeshed in an unparalleled range of musical activities. Today, White continues to release volumes of Coltrane transcriptions, compose music of varied styles, and keep up a working jazz quartet in his home base of Washington, D.C. Last April, The Jazz Gallery presented Mr. White’s first performance in New York in over two decades, and we are excited for his return this Saturday, April 25th.

Before coming to the hit on Saturday, check out our interview with Mr. White from last April, and this great radio piece on him from WAMU in Washington.

Andrew White III performs at The Jazz Gallery on Saturday, April 25th, 2015. The group features Mr. White on saxophone, Wade Beach on piano, Steve Novesel on bass, and Nasar Abadey on drums. The concert is produced by Anthony Radice. Sets are at 8 and 10 p.m. $25 general admission ($15 for members) for both sets. Purchase tickets here.
