Garrett Wolfe is the definition of the word “bassist”. He is an accomplished song writer, arranger, director and teacher. He is proficient on piano, guitar, ukulele and even bagpipes. All of this he “does”, but what he “is”, in his heart and soul, is a bassist. Completely at home on upright bass or bass guitar, or playing any genre of music, Garrett Wolfe’s passion for setting the groove from the bottom up is infectious to both the ear and the eye. He has the chops when he needs them, but his bass lines are always tasteful and without ego, creating a space that allows his fellow musicians to shine. This magic has landed him gigs with such varied talents as Art Blakey, Barbra Streisand, Billy Preston, Cal Tjader, Dave Grusin, Diane “Deedles” Schuur, Laurindo Almeida, Lee Ritenour, Michael Feinstein, Michael Hedges, Ravi Shankar, as well as the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Gregory Millar. Whether playing rock at the House of Blues, concerts at the Barclay Threatre or a music clinic for a handful of elementary school children, Garrett Wolfe’s best performance is always his next performance.
